Bono Honoured With Humanitarian Award at AIDS Fundraiser
Bono has been honoured with an award for his humanitarian work at an AIDS charity fundraiser in New York.

The U2 frontman said that he was 'proud', but instead of receiving an award, he should be giving it to someone.

"Rock stars always want to do two things. They want to have fun and change the world. If they can do both at the same time, you're okay," BBC quoted him, as saying.

While at the event Alicia Keys, the co-founder of the Keep A Child Alive charity told Associated Press that Bono is 'an amazing man'.

"He is an inspiration and single-handedly made it cool to have something to speak about," she said.

She also added that Bono "works tirelessly at really having a cause and fighting for it".
