Bono (née Paul David Hewson) took center stage as he sang at Warren Buffett's family wedding in Omaha, Neb.

Bono serenaded 285 wedding guests -- including Buffett and his three children, Susie, Howard and Peter -- on Friday, as first reported by the Omaha World-Herald.

In June, Bono surprised Buffett at this year's Forbes 400 Philanthropy Summit where he dedicated the tune "Home on the Range" to the wealthy Berkshire Hathaway CEO.

The Buffetts and Bono have bonded since working on similar philanthropic causes, with Susie serving on the board of the DATA (Debt, AIDS, Trade, Africa) charity, which Bono co-founded in 2002.
