What does one of the world’s most famous rock stars know about pover­ty? Plen­ty. Bono not only makes great music, he is mak­ing big changes in the world as well.

In recog­ni­tion of his achieve­ments, TIME mag­a­zine named him one of 2005’s Per­sons of the Year.

  1. Bono is awe­some! I’d peti­tion to get him can­on­ized — if only to have church­es dec­o­rat­ed with saints wear­ing shades.

    Seri­ous­ly, though, he is a hero of mine. How many peo­ple can say, “I got the nation­al debt of sev­er­al third world coun­tries forgiven”?
