Cry Power Episode 2: Bono

The HIV/AIDS Crisis Symbolises Inequality

The Cry Power podcast is hosted by Hozier in partnership with Global Citizen, talking to inspirational artists and activists about how to change the world. In its second episode, Hozier talks with Bono about what drove him to fight HIV/AIDS; why this podcast must be useful; and how where you live should not decide whether you live. But it's not all talk — you can join the Global Citizen movement and take action below to tackle HIV/AIDS before world leaders meet for a crucial conference later this week.

"We had a prayer as a band: to be useful,” Bono told Hozier on Cry Power. “It’s a good thing to utter: can we be useful? Can this podcast be useful? Can the people who listen to it become even more useful than they are?”

Global Citizens took 159,000 actions calling on world leaders to help end HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria — and on Thursday October 10 governments pledged $14 billion to help save 16 million lives.

It’s crucial leaders know the public support this incredible work — and want them to keep it up. Say ‘thanks’ now!
