Bono’s native Ireland canceled St. Patrick’s Day festivities because of the pandemic outbreak, CoVid-19, the U2 frontman wrote a new song and dedicated it to the front-liners who are helping the affected by the outbreak.
He uploaded a video singing his new song to U2’s Facebook page:
“A little postcard from bubblin’ Dublin on St. Patrick’s Day,” he begins. “A little tune made up here about an hour ago. I think it’s called ‘Let Your Love Be Known.’ Let me know what you think.”
The caption reads, “For the Italians who inspired it… for the Irish… for anyone who this St. Patrick’s Day is in a tight spot and still singing. For the doctors, nurses, carers on the front line, it’s you we’re singing to.”
While singing the song, Bono finds himself on the empty streets of Dublin, asking the residents to do the same – sing from the rooftops and offer hope to everybody who are facing the same situation as those in Italy.
