I Got Soul
In 2009 we released our first single 'I Got Soul' - by an urban music supergroup brought
together as the 'Young Soul Rebels'. The project was inspired by Bono's comments after
the legendary encore of 'All These Things That I've Done' at the end of our 2009 BRITS gig.
Referencing our work with child soldiers in Uganda and Congo, Bono told radio One the
next day "That chant, 'I've got soul, but I'm not a soldier', has a whole new meaning when
there is a War Child banner behind your head".
We decided to hand the baton from one generation of musicians to the next - and let them
take our message to a whole new audience. And so it was that the hottest urban musicians in
the UK came together one day in July to collaborate on a rework of The Killers' iconic track.
