11.9.02 - Launch

U2's Bono will be honored for his humanitarian deeds by human rights organization the Simon Wiesenthal Center in New York on November 18.

The singer will receive the Humanitarian Laureate Award "for his keen sense of social justice and his tireless efforts on behalf of the underprivileged and disenfranchised of the world," according to Doug Morris, CEO of Universal Music Group, the parent company of U2's label, Interscope Records.

The presentation will take place during the organization's dinner at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City. Morris will chair the event.

The Simon Wiesenthal Center is dedicated to preserving the memory of the Holocaust, and fostering tolerance, understanding, and international human rights.

U2's new hits collection, The Best Of 1990-2000, featuring the new tracks "Electrical Storm" and "The Hands That Built America," was released Tuesday (November 5).
