Why Clay
From Sing 2
Sounds So
Many characters from “Sing” have returned for “Sing 2,” as Buster and his pals try and land a residency in a Las Vegas-esque town. Actors like Matthew McConaughey reprise their roles and there are also plenty of newcomers, including the voice behind the mysterious Clay Calloway, which you might recognize.
If you owned a radio in the 80s or 90s (or an iPhone in 2014), you have probably heard the voice behind Clay Calloway. That's because the lion is voiced by none other than U2's lead vocalist, Bono.
Bono also contributes an original song to the film, "Your Song Saved My Life," which is performed by Bono and close to the heart of Clay, who has lost his wife. Bono noted that he thinks "it's the people who hear the songs who save the performer's life, really. You give us a special life, and we're so grateful."
