U2 Guitarist The Edge Rocks Sistine Chapel For Cancer

May 17, 2016
U2 guitarist The Edge (real name David Evans) has become the first contemporary artist to perform in the Sistine Chapel, a venue he described as "the most beautiful parish hall in the world."

The Edge sang four songs on Saturday, April 30 for about 200 doctors, researchers and philanthropists who attended a conference at the Vatican on regenerative medicine called Cellular Horizons. The Edge, whose father died earlier this year from cancer and whose daughter overcame leukemia, is on the board of foundations working for cancer prevention.

He played acoustic guitar and sang a cover of Leonard Cohen's "If It Be Your Will" and U2 tracks "Yahweh", "Ordinary Love" and "Walk On." Check out the Tweet below for a short video of his performance.
