OTHER NOTES
On September 10, 2005 U2 contributed to the Hurricane Katrina benefit, "Shelter from the Storm:  A Concert for the Gulf Coast".  Their contribution was done live from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto Canada where they were rehersing for the third leg of the Vertigo Tour.  As a special bonus, Mary J. Blige appeared with them to sing the song.

That performance was released as a concert DVD and features the original version of this song.  For her album The Breakthrough, Mary J. Blige took this base performance, and additional strings and vocals, as well as additional music was added.  It was released as a single worldwide featuring the Radio Edit of this new mix.

The CD itself features a hidden track that follows approximately 20 seconds after One ends, the two tracks are combined together as one track that is 8:18 in length with 20 seconds of silence between the two.
