Bob Geldof may be releasing a charity single in aid of the Ebola crisis

Tuesday November 4, 2014

Sir Bob Geldof is reportedly planning to release a charity single to raise money to help the Ebola crisis in West Africa.

It is rumored that the 63-year-old’s latest project will be a revamp of Band Aid's Do They Know It's Christmas? which first topped the charts in 1984.

The Boomtown Rats singer is reportedly on the hunt for acts join him for a December release marking the 30th anniversary of the original hit.

The original song featured George Michael, David Bowie and Bono, among many others. Two more versions were later released in 1989 and 2004.

There have also been reports that Sir Bob may be planning a fundraiser concert, similar to Live Aid in 1985.

Sir Bob is known for his political activism and has spoken out on why he thinks the Ebola crisis in Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea has worsened.

"It's the usual cliché of too little too late. It’s now about calling up the various leaders and saying, 'Now, do it now’," he said at the One Young World summit in Dublin.
