Bob Geldof and Band Aid 30 Release ‘Don’t They Know It’s Christmas?’

30 years after the original Band Aid came together to bring awareness and raise money to fight famine in Ethiopa, a new group of stars has come together to fight Ebola.

Bob Geldof announced the news earlier this month and now the single, “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” is available on iTunes. The song was re-written to focus on the Ebola crisis in West Africa and proceeds from sales of the recording will go directly to fighting the disease.

Artists who participated in the recording include U2’s Bono, Elbow, Coldplay’s Chris Martin, Emeli Sandé, Sam Smith, Rita Ora, Ed Sheeran, One Direction, Seal, Sinead O’Connor, Ellie Goulding, Paloma Faith, Bastille, Angelique Kidjo, and Olly Murs, among others.

Support the cause and buy “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” now on iTunes.
