Bono, Wyclef, Bowie Set For NetAid Conference

U2 singer Bono, Fugees member Wyclef Jean

and rocker David Bowie are set to attend a Manhattan, N.Y., press

conference Wednesday morning (Sept. 8) for the charity organization NetAid.

The conference will include an announcement of the full lineup of the

Oct. 9 NetAid concerts, as well as the debut of the organization's website

(www.netaid.org), according to a statement from the charity. Veteran

producer Quincy Jones (Michael Jackson) also is scheduled

to appear at the conference, which will be held at 11:45 a.m. at the

Millennium Hotel. President Bill Clinton, UK Prime Minister Tony Blair

and former South African President Nelson Mandela will participate at

the conference via satellite, according to the statement. Organizers have

said that the main goal of NetAid, which includes three simultaneous

concerts in three countries Oct. 9, is not to raise money, but to raise

awareness of global poverty.
