Do They Know It’s Christmas

Thirty years ago, “Do They Know It’s Christmas” was released and instantly it became one of my favorite Christmas songs.  It was not  one of the typical happy joyful holiday song that I had always heard and loved.  Even to this day, every time I hear it I get tears in my eyes.  I can’t even sing the whole thing without getting choked up.  “Feed the World” the message was clear.

Today, thirty years later, a new version has been released.  This time, stressing the message, “Heal the World.”

All proceeds from the sale of the song will go to the Band Aid trust in the global fight against Ebola.

I know it might be a bit early for Christmas songs, but this one deserves to be played early.

    I distinctly remember buying the 45 in the hallway of middle school. Isn’t that funny?
