Bob Geldof and Midge Ure revealed that some of today’s biggest singers and musicians will be part of Band Aid 30 which aims to help raise money to fight the spread of Ebola in West Africa.
The two intend to give the song Do They Know It’s Christmas a new makeover for 2014, three decades after the first band aid project successfully raised millions for charity.
The new project, Band Aid 30, will have some of the biggest stars of today. Proceeds from the sale of the new version will go to help combat the spread of the Ebola virus.
The stars revealed that the song’s lyrics have been changed slightly as to accommodate the new charity for the fight against the disease.
As was the case with the previous Band Aid charity, the UK government will likely waive VAT for the sales of the single.
