Lead singer of U2 Bono has recorded a song with Alicia Keys as a part of the campaign to save lives in Africa.

The two have lent their voice to the song "Don't Give Up (Africa)", originally sung by Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush. All the proceeds will go to AIDS and HIV charity Keep A Child Alive, according to Internet Movie Database.

Keys says: "I love this song. And I love Bono. I really respect what he has done for Africa and how he has used his fame to do good in the world. I hope I can do half as much in my life.

"I believe AIDS is the most important issue we face, because how we treat the poor is a reflection of who we are as a people. I urge everyone to recognise the extreme disaster Africa is facing and step up for the motherland."
