Image

On this day in 1984, a group of prominent musicians recorded Band Aid’s ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas’ to raise money to help famine victims in Ethiopia. The performers included George Michael, Sting, Bono, Phil Collins, Paul Weller and many more. The song was written by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure, and upon release on November 28th quickly became one of the best selling singles in UK history. It continues to be a popular Christmas song.
