Bono, members of Queen, Eric Clapton, Andrea Bocelli, and Liza Minnelli all joined Luciano Pavarotti last night (May 27) in Modena, Italy, for a concert to help the United Nations deal with the humanitarian emergency in Iraq. Besides proceeds from ticket sales, money was also pledged by viewers of the event, which was broadcast in Italy and several other countries.

Teamed with Pavarotti, Bono sang a version of "Ave Maria," substituting the Latin words with English, beginning the song with "where is the justice" in the world. Pavarotti stuck to the Latin prayer words.

Despite breaking her right kneecap after a fall in Bologna over the weekend, Minnelli performed a few bars from the musical "Cabaret" via television hookup.

"What good is sitting alone in your room?" Minnelli sang, surrounded by hospital staff and family as she sat with her right leg in a full cast stretched out before her in an Italian hospital where she was scheduled to have surgery. "I'm proud to be a part of it any way I can," Minnelli said.
