Band Aid 30 [VIDEO]
Band Aid 30 was recorded Saturday, November 15th, 30 years after the original Band Aid song was recorded. This year, the money raised will go to help fight Ebola in Africa, and stars turned out to help with the recording including Bono who was on the original.
For Band Aid 30 the lyrics have been rewritten slightly. Instead of the line "Where the only water flowing is the bitter sting of tears", the new version has the line "Where a kiss of love can kill you and there's death in every tear". Bono's famous line "Well tonight thank God it's them instead of you" has been changed to "Well tonight we're reaching out and touching you".
Bob Geldof oversaw the production, as he did 30 years ago. In addition to Bono, One Direction, Sam Smith, Rita Ora, Elbow, Seal, Jessie Ware, Fuse ODG, Sinead O'Connor, Angelique Kidjo, Olly Murs, Paloma Faith, Queen drummer Roger Taylor, Clean Bandit and Foals all contributed to the song as well as others.
