Bono gets down with Nile and The Edge for some karaoke

Bono and The Edge got down with Chic frontman Nile Rodgers in New York for a spot of celebrity karaoke last night. Chris Martin of Coldplay also got in on the act.

The jam session took place after an auction in aid of RED, the brand licencee set up by Bono and Bobby Shriver to help in the global fight against AIDS.

The auction was held in the up-run to World AIDS Day on December 1 and raised an impressive $13 million.

In the clips, which were filmed by auction attendee Michael Blatter, Bono, The Edge and Rodgers sing David Bowie's Let's Dance, Nile and Daft Punk's global smash Get Lucky, and Chic's Good Times.

Bono and Chris Martin also joined forces to sing Lou Reed's Perfect Day and a cover of U2 song Beautiful Day. Watch it all here!
