>> 9 November 2008

I just discovered this wonderful album "In the name of Love: Africa Celebrates U2

Produced by Shawn Amos and Paul Heck, In The Name Of Love: Africa Celebrates U2 features Grammy Award-winning/nominated African artists as well as top up-and-coming talents including Angelique Kidjo, Les Nubians, Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars, Vieux Farka Tour, Vusi Mahlasela and the Soweto Gospel Choir. Initially inspired by his work in South Africa while running the Quincy Jones Listen Up Foundation, Amos re-entered the music industry with a heartfelt initiative to cultivate greater awareness of the emerging socio-economic success stories happening within many of the country's regions. Amos, a longtime fan of U2, witnessed Bono's direct philanthropic impact via the launch of the ONE campaign and (RED), and his poignant outspoken public commentary on the immediate financial needs facing Africa.

Track Listing: 
1. Angelique Kidjo “Mysterious Ways" 
2. Vieux Farka Tour “Bullet The Blue Sky" 
3. Ba Cissoko “Sunday Bloody Sunday" 
4. Vusi Mahlasela “Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own"

If you are a U2 fan or a fan of African music, this is a must buy.
