Bono to be Knighted

Published: 2006-12-27
On Saturday December 23, 2006 Britain announced that well known musician and humanitarian, Bono will be knighted.

Even though Bono will be honored as a knight, he will not take on the title "Sir" which most of his comrades have such as, Sir Elton John, Sir Mick Jagger, Sir Paul McCartney. He will not carry the name Sir due to the fact that he is not a National of Britain or the Commonwealth of former British colonies.

Bono is receiving this honor due to a variety of reasons. He is famously known as Bono, lead singer of acclaimed rock band U2. Releasing twelve studio albums and touring worldwide couldn't hold Bono back from pursing his other passion, humanitarianism.

Bono is a well known advocate for the fight against AIDS in Africa. Some of the charities the band and him support are; Amnesty International, Greenpeace, and Make Poverty History.

In doing all this good within his forty six years of life he is deserving of this official honor.
