Musician Youssou N'Dour announced at a press conference on Wednesday that Bono is joining forces with him to bring awareness to the humanitarian plight in the Horn of Africa next year. The New Africa initiative will include a solidarity torch relay and various events throughout the African countries. Plans are to also hold a concert in Kenya in 2012. N'Dour said, "(Bono) called me to tell me... 'You can count on me because I'm a friend of Africa and I'm going to support you completely'." In the past, N'Dour has campaigned with Bono at the G8.
