Band Aid 30

"One Direction, Ed Sheeran and Elbow are among the acts who will take part in a fourth version of the Band Aid charity single, Do They Know It's Christmas.

Announcing the project, Bob Geldof and Midge Ure said the song's lyrics would be changed to reflect the Ebola crisis.

The original was released in 1984. It sold 3.7 million copies and raised £8m for famine relief in Ethiopia.

The new version will be recorded this Saturday and should be available for download on Monday morning.

A physical version of the song will be released three weeks later and will feature cover artwork designed by artist Tracey Emin.

The record is being produced by Paul Epworth, who has masterminded hits by the likes of Adele and One Direction.

The download will cost 99p, while the CD single will retail for £4. The song will not be made available on Spotify and other music streaming services until January.

Geldof and Ure, who masterminded the first version, said the project was nothing to do with nostalgia.

"We should gather the pop crowd together to do our thing," said Geldof at a press conference on Monday.

He added that decisions about which artist will sing which lines are not going to be taken until Saturday's recording session in London, while both musicians advocated purchasing the physical format."


Ed accepts fan's proposal, making her wish come true days before her death

The two then shared a special moment, when she presented Sheeran with a ring and he accepted her proposal — one of her very last wishes.

Papworth died on Friday, Nov. 7, according to the charity that helped arrange the meeting between her and Sheeran.

Papworth was first diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor at the age of 11, according to Cook. After the tumor spread to her spine, she underwent surgery, radiation and chemotherapy over a period of 18 months, which left her temporarily unable to speak or walk.

She recovered in her early teens, Cook said, and remained cancer-free until November 2011, when the cancer returned in her spine.

As Papworth was a huge fan of Sheeran, her mother Tricia bought tickets for them to see his concert last year. But as the teen's condition worsened, Tricia reached out to the DreamMaker Foundation to see if they could help fulfill a fantasy of her daughter's.

"Katie's idol is Ed Sheeran," Cook said, "so when Katie deteriorated, Tricia contacted us to ask if we could make it happen for her to meet Ed and propose." The foundation happily obliged.

"Our Katie proposed and he kept her ring and a Lego House painting she had done for him," Tricia said after the proposal, according to Cook. "Sometimes it's hard to reach her but she gave genuine smiles tonight."

The Les Hoey MBE DreamMaker Foundation is a small Scottish charity that works to make dreams come true for children with life-threatening illnesses. "We can't thank Ed Sheeran and his fantastic team enough for helping us with this," Cook said.

Säger bara, vilken gentleman

Nya EACH ambassadören

Igår presenterades Ed som East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) nya ambassadör. Ed har sedan en tid tillbaka stött EACH och igår så blev han officiellt en av deras amabassadörer. Igår hälsade Ed även på barnen och de som arbetar på EACH på The Treehouse Ipswich. När Ed var där spelade han gitarr på hans egen designade välgörenhets gitarr, de pengarna han tjände in på gitarren gick faktiskt till just EACH. Några barn spelade även piano och trummor samtidigt som Ed även signerade. 
Ed pratade även lite om hur han tänkte om välgörenheten: 

“It was great to come to The Treehouse to see the fantastic work the charity does. The facilities are amazing and I can see just how important the care and support is to the children and their families. It was a really moving experience and I look forward to working with the charity in the future.”


Vanessa Bell, en fundraiser för EACH, om Ed:

“Ed is a fantastic supporter of EACH so it was great to be able to welcome him to The Treehouse and show him the difference his support makes to our work. Not only does Ed help raise vital funds for EACH but he’s also a great ambassador for the charity; raising awareness and understanding of the charity especially though social media to his millions of fans. Recognising Ed as an EACH ambassador is a way of publicly acknowledging and celebrating his support and we look forward to working with him in the future.”


Själv tycker jag att det är underbart kul att se hur mycket välgörenhet Ed gör.
