Feel Good Friday

U2 has been and will continue to be one of my favorite bands for reasons like this...Bono (in black leather pants! ROCK STAR!) is a class act. And, yes, it made me teary.

U2 brings blind fan onstage to perform

"Most every show on U2's 360 world tour has ended with "Moment of Surrender," but before walking off stage last night in Nashville, Bono saw a blind fan up front holding a sign saying he wanted to play a song for his wife.

What do you want to play?" Bono said to him. "Get a guitar for this dude. Gents, we have a surprise guest." The man said he was really nervous but once handed Bono's acoustic guitar he began playing "All I Want Is You."

It started with just Bono on vocals, but soon enough the entire band joined in for a moment the man is unlikely to ever forget. When it was all done, Bono gave him the guitar."
