Nobel Peace Prize Nod for Bono



After the many "social works" he's done, U2 vocalist, Bono, is now becoming one of the 166 nominees to get the 2005 Nobel Peace Prize

After the many social works he's done, including champions Third World debt relief, AIDS awareness and increased action in Sudan's troubled Darfur region, U2's Bono is now becoming one of the 166 nominees to get the 2005 Nobel Piece Prize. It is prize traditionally given to those who pursue humanitarian work and/or human-rights advocacy.

Getting the nomination, which means more compares to the Grammys and a Golden Globe he's got, Bono claims "a fundamental human right is the ability to start again, to break free from the sins of the father." Any other nominees worth for the prestigious honor, which will be announced in October and presented in Norway on December 10, 2005, are Ravi Shankar, Pope John Paul II, and U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell.
