Some of the world’s most famous singers have united for a good cause.

U2’s Bono, Rita Ora, Ed Sheeran and more have lent their voices to a Band Aid remake of the iconic song, “Do They Know It’s Christmas?”

Proceeds from the song, which comes 30 years after the original, will be used to aid the fight against the deadly Ebola virus.

Sam Smith, Chris Martin, Emeli Sande, Bastille’s Dan Smith, Seal, Ellie Goulding, Sinead O’Connor and the boys of One Direction also appear on the song, among others.
