Eddie Vedder was on hand to help celebrate U2’s music during Sunday’s Kennedy Center Honors in Washington D.C.
The Pearl Jam frontman performed “Elevation” and “One” during the ceremony – filling in for a sick Mary J. Blige on the latter song.
At the event, US President Joe Biden thanked U2 for “the way you uplift people”.
Biden went on to quote lyrics from ‘One’ saying: “At a moment we would do well to remember when there is too much hate, too much division and too much anger in America and, quite frankly, around the world, as [U2’s] song goes: ‘We are one, we are not the same, we get to carry each other.’”
U2 was honored with a lifetime achievement award at the ceremony, which will air on CBS Dec. 28th.
