Bono is an Irish musician with a net worth of $900 million. Born Paul David Hewson in Dublin, Ireland, Bono formed his band U2 at the age of sixteen, in response to an ad on his school's bulletin board. Beginning under the name Feedback, the band changed their name to U2 (by way of The Hype) in 1977. U2 signed with Island Records in 1980 and went on to become one of the most popular bands in the world, releasing twelve albums, consistently selling out live venues, and winning twenty-two Grammy awards. Bono has become a well-known social activist, performing in the Live Aid, Band Aid, and Live 8 concerts, and campaigning for third-world debt relief and greater international involvement in the African AIDS crisis. In 2002, he co-founded the organization DATA (Debt, AIDS, Trade, Africa), which he followed up with Project Red, a well-known initiative against disease in Africa. Aside from his activism, Bono is also an accomplished businessman; in 1992, he invested in the refurbishing of Dublin's Clarence Hotel, and he serves on the board of Elevation Partners, a private equity firm with stakes in the entertainment business. Bono married Alison Hewson in 1976; the couple have two daughters and two sons. In 2009, Bono's investment firm, Elevation Partners, purchased a 1.5% stake in facebook for $90 million. When Facebook IPOs in 2012, that 1.5% stake could be worth $1.5 billion assuming the expected market cap reaches $100 billion. That would make Bono the world's first billionaire rock star!
Paul David Hewson (born 10 May 1960), most commonly known by his stage name Bono (/'b?no?/ BON-oh), is an Irish singer, musician, and humanitarian best known for being the main vocalist of the Dublin-based rock band U2. Bono was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland, and attended Mount Temple Comprehensive School where he met his future wife, Alison Stewart, and the future members of U2. Bono writes almost all U2 lyrics, often using political, social, and religious themes. During their early years, Bono's lyrics contributed to U2's rebellious and spiritual tone. As the band matured, his lyrics became inspired more by personal experiences shared with members of U2.
Outside the band, he has collaborated and recorded with numerous artists, is managing director and a managing partner of Elevation Partners, and has refurbished and owns The Clarence Hotel in Dublin with The Edge. Bono is also widely known for his activism concerning Africa, for which he co-founded DATA, EDUN, the ONE Campaign and Product Red. He has organised and played in several benefit concerts and has met with influential politicians. Bono has been praised and criticised for his activism and involvement with U2. He has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, was granted an honorary knighthood by Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom, and was named as a Person of the Year by Time, among other awards and nominations.
Bono was born in the Rotunda Hospital, Dublin, on 10 May 1960. He was raised in Northside suburb of Glasnevin with his brother, Norman Robert Hewson (who is eight years older than Bono), by their mother Iris (nee Rankin), a Church of Ireland Anglican, and their father Brendan Robert "Bob" Hewson, a Roman Catholic. His parents initially agreed that the first child would be raised Anglican and the second Catholic. Although Bono was the second child, he also attended Church of Ireland services with his mother and brother.
He went to the local primary Glasnevin National School. Bono
