Unless you were at Jony and Marc’s (RED) auction on Saturday (Nov 23) held at Sothebys New York, you probably weren’t aware that Bono got up on stage with Nile Rodgers and sang Daft Punk‘s ubiquitous summer jam “Get Lucky”. Now, there’s footage that you can check out below of the U2 singer (along with U2’s guitarist The Edge) going in on what Nile Rodgers called the “most influential song of his career.” This is approximately the one millionth cover of Daft Punk’s song, but perhaps the only whose performance raised money for AIDS.
“Get Lucky” peaked at No. 2 on the charts this summer, and has spent 29 weeks on the Billboard charts.
