Here’s the All-New Band Aid 30 ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas’ Song To Help Stop Ebola in Africa

The original song “Do They Know It’s Christmas” was written by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure in 1984 to raise money for relief of the famine in Ethiopia.


Thirty years later, Bob has recruited a new group of musical talents including Sam Smith, Ellie Goulding, Chris Martin, Ed Sheeran, Bastille, Bono, One Direction and more for Band Aid 30. Together, they are helping raise money to help stop the Ebola outbreak.

The song is currently available on iTunes and Google Play

The track raised more than £1 million “within four or five minutes”, according to Geldof, who said the response had been “extraordinary”.
