    Irish rockers U2 recorded a special tribute to mark Nelson Mandela's 93rd birthday on Monday. The band performed a rendition of "Happy Birthday" at a show in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania last week and recorded it for Mandela! How cool of a birthday present is that for the former South African leader?

    What band would you like to serenade you with Happy Birthday? I'd go with Lady Gaga!
