U2’s latest single “Invisible” likely perked up the ears of many fans when it was teased during the first quarter of Super Bowl XLVIII.
But the fact that the legendary band was offering it as a free download via iTunes for 36 hours in order to raise money for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS – through a partnership with (RED) and Bank of America – caused a massive worldwide reaction.
Bank of America originally pledged to donate $1 for each download up to two million, but the success of the campaign prompted them to exceed that mark, as U2 announced Tuesday that the effort raised more than $3 million for the cause.
Now, all proceeds from “Invisible,” which costs $1.29, will go to the Global Fund, as well.
