Buffett Joins Bon Jovi in a Song for Charity

Warren E. Buffett appears to be building a side career as a musician. Mr. Buffett, the Berkshire Hathaway chairman, gave his ukulele a workout on Tuesday in a duet with Jon Bon Jovi. Mr. Buffett sang the Bette Midler classic “The Glory of Love” at the Forbes 400 Summit on Philanthropy. Their performance was meant to underscore the spirit of the event, with lyrics that began,“You’ve got to give a little.” Mr. Buffett, whose net worth is estimated by Forbes to be $44 billion, has encouraged dozens of other wealthy individuals and families to give most of their fortunes to charity. Though the scope of Mr. Bon Jovi’s philanthropy may be smaller than that of his billionaire band mate, the rocker has done charity work as well. The organization he heads, the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation, offers food and affordable housing to the needy. Forbes singled him out last year.
