LINER NOTES
American Prayer: Written by Hewson and Stewart.  Performed by Bono, the Edge, Beyonce and David A Stewart.
OTHER NOTES
In late 2002 Bono worked with Joe Strummer of the Clash and David A. Stewart on a song titled after Nelson Mandela's Prision Number '46664'.  This song was to be used to bring attention to the devestation that AIDS and HIV was creating in Africa.  Joe Strummer, however, passed away before the completion of the song and it was left up to Bono and David Stewart to finish the song.

Originally planned for early 2003, a concert was planned in South Africa to launch the 46664 campaign.  The concert was pushed back and rescheduled for November 29th, 2003 to coincide with World AIDS day.  The concert was streamed live on the internet, and was later televised around the world.

The track featured on this album featuring U2 is a song called "American Prayer" which Bono and David Stewart wrote and Bono often performed in 2002 on his "Heart of America" tour when he was bringing information on the AIDS crisis to middle America.  He is joined in performing this song by Beyonce, David Stewart and the Edge.

The entire concert was released on CD, spread over three discs.  These discs were sold separately to hopefully bring in buyers who would only be interested in one disc and wouldn't pay for a three disc set.  Contributions by Bono and the Edge are spread out over all three released discs.  The other two discs capturing this live event are Part II: Long Road to Freedom and Part III: Amandla.  There was also a 2 disc DVD released of the entire concert.
