WATCH: Bono Calms Crying Kid Singing "One"

Bono found a new use for his singing voice -- to calm a crying child.  

U2 spent the night of September 11th off from the Experience and Innocence tour in Paris by attending a benefit for the Food for Soul project at the Refettorio restaurant. Chef Massimo Bottura asked the group to play a couple of acoustic numbers for the crowd, and while they were playing "One," a child in the audience began to cry. Bono picked up the girl and helped her calm down by continuing to sing the song.  

Bottura caught the moment with his phone and posted it on his Instagram.  

Thanks @u2 for supporting @refettorioparis and @foodforsoul_it project We love you all!! #onelove Thanks to my friend @jr and all the #volunteer s #rock
