Bono and Chris Martin combined their talents for a good cause during an appearance Nov. 28 on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” The U2 frontman and Coldplay star appeared on the popular ABC late-night talk show to perform a duet of the jazz standard “One for My Baby (and One More for the Road)” to support RED in their efforts to raise awareness and funds to battle AIDS.
Fans who missed the pair of multi-Grammy winners in action can check out a stream of Tuesday's performance, which was posted Nov. 29 at the official YouTube channel of “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” The celebrity rockers were also joined by actor Sean Penn, who makes a cameo appearance during the song playing “Joe” the bartender.
The 5:01 minute video opens with a black & white shot of Bono, sitting at bar with Penn. Bono handles lead vocals until about the mid-way mark when the camera pans to Martin and shot shifts from b&w to color to reveal the “Viva La Vida” hitmaker sitting behind a red baby grand piano.
Martin handles lead vocals for the middle eight before the camera swings back to Bono, who finishes up, singing the song to Penn as Martin continues to accompany on piano. Fans can check out the full performance above.
