U2 Makes Surprise Appearance At Haiti Benefit Event

U2 made a surprise appearance at Sean Penn's third annual Help Haiti benefit in Beverly Hills on January 11. The Irish rockers took the stage at the Montage Hotel ballroom, performing a set that included "I Will Follow," "Vertigo" and "Desire."

Bono and the Edge also covered Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" with Haitian vocalist Anaelle Jean-Pierre during the set. The benefit raised nearly $6 million for the J/P Haitian Relief Organization.

Stars spotted at the event included Bette Midler, Michael Douglas, Gwyneth Paltrow, Charlize Theron, Piers Morgan, Chelsea Handler, Sarah Silverman, Idris Elba and Kathryn Bigelow.

U2's latest, currently untitled, is expected in April. The LP was recorded primarily at New York's Electric Lady Studios with producer Danger Mouse at the helm.
