U2 were among those honored at the Golden Globes Sunday night.

According to billboard.com:

U2′s “Ordinary Love” from “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom” received the Best Original Song trophy, besting recordings from Coldplay, Taylor Swift and others. The band had won once before, in 2003 for “The Hands That Built America,” from Martin Scorsese’s “Gangs Of New York.”

The band is no stranger to Nelson’s fight for freedom as they began working for Mandela and the anti-aparthied movement back in the day (when they were mere teenagers in the 1970′s).

This really is personal, very very personal,” Bono added during the acceptance speech. “This man turned our life upside down, right side up. A man who refused to hate but he thought love would do a better job. We wrote a love song because its kind of what’s extraordinary about the film. It’s a dysfunctional love story.

Meanwhile, rollingstone.com reports that U2 performed together live for the first time in years on Saturday night when they appeared together at a benefit for Haiti in Beverly Hills.

The band took the event’s 300 guests by surprise at Sean Penn’s third annual Help Haiti benefit at the Montage Hotel.
