Bob Geldof's Ebola charity song in the pipeline?
London: Irish rocker Bob Geldof is reportedly planning to release the fourth version of the charity single "Do they know it's Christmas?" to help fight Ebola crisis.
As per reports by The Sun newspaper, Geldof is reaching out to potential artists for a December release that would coincide with the 30th anniversary of the original song, reports hollywoodreporter.com.
The fight against the Ebola epidemic in West Africa will be the primary motivation and beneficiary of the single.
"Bob started casually getting in touch with people earlier this month. A few big names were very surprised to see he had emailed them just asking if they would be interested in being part of a project... He didn't make any formal requests, but he wanted to gauge an idea of who was potentially available," said a source.
The other two versions of the single were released in 1989 and 2004 respectively.
