For the fourth time, a bunch of A-list artists will lend their time and talents to a good cause. They will record and release the 2014 version of the smash "Do They Know It's Christmas?"
This time, the song is being updated and it will be used to raise money for the fight against Ebola in West Africa.
The original lyrics to the 1984-released charity single are to be updated to reflect the current Ebola crisis.
The confirmed Band Aid 30 artists are: Adele, Bastille, Bono, Coldplay's Chris Martin, Ed Sheeran, Emeli Sandé, Ellie Goulding, George Michael, Olly Murs, One Direction, Paloma Faith, Roger Taylor from Queen, Sam Smith, Sinéad O'Connor, Sting and more.
That is quite a list of talented Brits. If all of these folks turn up, it will be a Christmas miracle!
The new version will be recorded this Saturday, November 15 in London by Bob Geldof of The Boomtown Rats. It will be on sale on Monday, November 17.
