Bono took the opportunity to tell the audience a little about Costa Rica, that the country has no army and is the land of “Pura Vida’.

He then paid Marcela a tribute by calling her the “Angel of Costa Rica”, followed by singing to her singing Angel of Harlem.


Marcela got her five minutes of fame, featured on the big screen and captured forever on video and posted on Youtube.
