Show Details:

The OneXOne charity was formed in 2004, and held what has become it’s first annual event in September 2005, during the Toronto International Film Festival. The event that year was held in a tent, set up in Toronto’s Distillery District, and was hosted by Kate Hudson. Bono was in town, and hearing of the event, dropped in to see what was going on, attending with Daniel Lanois. 450 people were in attendance at the event.

Bono’s surprise appearance was a quick one, but long enough that he took the stage with the African Children’s Choir who were performing at the show. The performance brought Daniel Lanois to tears. It is not known what song Bono performed with the choir.

Other attendees at the dinner included Elle Macpherson, Kurt Russell, Cameron Crowe, Cuba Gooding Jr, and Claire Danes. Other performers included Raine Maida and Chantal Kreviazuk, both of whom performed with the African Children’s Choir as well. The event raised over 1.5 million dollars in one evening.
