Band Aid 30

30 years ago, Bob Geldof and Midge Ure gathered some of the most popular musicians at the time to collaborate on a charity single to raise money to support those suffering from a famine in Ethiopia, and other anti-poverty projects.
This weekend, a new generation of musicians (and some of those from the original Band Aid single) gathered in the same studio to record a new version of the song, to fund efforts to support those affected by Ebola
The lyrics were released and variously tweeted out in advance of the recording.



This could make a task for students to rewrite the original lyrics, with the message of supporting those affected by the spread of the disease. Or perhaps another theme altogether...
