On Christmas Eve, rock icon Bono took to the streets of Dublin to sing for two homeless organizations.

The event was organized by Glen Hansard, lead singer of Irish band The Frames. On Friday he tweeted that he’d be “busking with some friends tomorrow on Grafton Street.”

Most savvy Dubliners could surmise that “some friends” would most likely include the man known by his family as Paul Hewson. Bono and Hansard have busked Grafton Street for the last few years during the holiday season. This year, they were joined by such other well-loved Irish performers as Liam O’Maonlai from Hothouse Flowers, Mundy, and Declan O’Rourke.

Those who saw the live performance were encouraged to give their spare change to the Simon Community and Peter McVerry Trust, two organizations that serve Ireland’s homeless communities.

Thanks to the goodness of YouTube, you can catch a bit of the busking session.

Now that you’ve seen Bono sing, what homeless charity can you support in your local area?
