THE new Band Aid single to raise money to tackle Ebola, has been unveiled in the United Kingdom.

A video featuring artists such as One Direction, Rita Ora, Ed Sheeran and Bono singing the reworked Do They Know It’s Christmas? was was broadcast on Britain’s X-Factor.


A number of stars came together to record the reworked 1984 song to raise money to tackle Ebola.

Ebola was first reported in March and has killed more than 5,000 people, mainly in West Africa.

Organiser Bob Geldof said the British government waived tax on the single so all the money raised by the song will go to charity.
