Watch Ellie Goulding, Rita Ora, One Direction in ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’ cover!
All of our favourite British artists have come together for Bob Geldof’s Band Aid 30 to cover the 1984 original charity single, ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’
While the original track featuring the likes of Phil Collins, Paul Young, Spandau Ballet, Paul McCartney and Sting was recorded in an effort to raise money for the famine in Ethiopia, this year’s track is focused of efforts to overcome the West African Ebola epidemic.
The lineup includes a catalogue of some of the most iconic British musicians today, including Disclosure, Jessie Ware, Ellie Goulding, Chris Martin, Bono, Paloma Faith, Olly Murs, Sam Smith, One Direction, Ed Sheeran, Rita Ora, Seal, Fuse ODG, Anélique Kidjo, Jimmy Napes and Emile Sandé.
Fun fact: U2's Bono actually appears in both versions!
