Some of contemporary Christian music's top artists will sing
U2 songs on "In the Name of Love: Artists United for Africa,"
a benefit album to help fight the African AIDS epidemic. The
Jan. 27 release on Sparrow Records includes "Sunday, Bloody
Sunday" by Pillar, "Pride (In the Name of Love)" by Delirious?
and "Love Is Blindness" by Sixpence None the Richer. The
project grew out of a meeting U2 frontman Bono had with
several Christian musicians in Nashville last year. "It
started with Bono making a statement about the Christian
community needing to step up to the plate and do something
about Africa," said Dan Haseltine of Jars of Clay, which
remakes "All I want Is You." The album's packaging will
contain essays by Bono, President Bush and Sen. Bill Frist (R-
Tenn.). Other participating artists include Toby Mac, Tait,
Audio Adrenaline, Grits and Nichole Nordeman.
