I have to say that my most inspirational musician undoubtedly is Bono from U2. He has had such a long and prosperous career as a singer, songwriter and humanitarian. He has collaborated with some of the finest interpreters in the music industry as a whole; both on and off the stage.
Bono inspires me mostly because he is humble in the sense that he uses his talent and fame to help make the world a better place.
That is something I take into consideration as an artist myself. Who wouldn’t admire that as a quality in someone else?
I believe that those of us that have the ability and blessing of being heard by the millions around the world, have a moral responsibility to use it for the greater good of mankind. From the tips of his fingers to the depths of the world, Bono does that better than anyone.
