McCartney Celebrates Peace Prize
It was the 100th anniversary of the Nobel Prize, and Paul McCartney led the celebration in Oslo, Norway, on Tuesday night, performing two songs -- "Your Loving Flame" and "Freedom" -- from new album "Driving Rain," Reuters reported. "The first one I wrote for my fiancee, Heather, and the second one I wrote for the American people after Sept. 11, but tonight I'd like to dedicate them both to my friend George," McCartney said. It was his first concert since the death of fellow former Beatle George Harrison. Reuters reported that in addition to this year's Peace Prize winner, U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan, the audience included Norway's Crown Prince Haakon, Crown Princess Mette-Marit, Princess Martha and a number of other Nobel laureates. McCartney said he had "always felt that the strength of peace and love can give the world hope upon which to build our future."
