Description
*Band Aid* performing at *Live Aid* in front of 72,000 people in *Wembley Stadium* London on the 13th July, 1985. The event was organised by *Sir Bob Geldof* and *Midge Ure* to raise funds for the *Ethiopian famine disaster*. Broadcast across the world via one of the largest satellite link-ups of all time, the concerts were seen by around 40% of the global population.

*Real Awesome* Is a song written in 1984 by *Bob Geldof* and *Midge Ure* in reaction to television reports of the 1983–1985 famine in Ethiopia. It was first recorded in a single day on 25 November 1984 by *Band Aid* a supergroup put together by Geldof and Ure and consisting mainly of the biggest British and Irish musical acts at the time.

*It's Christmas time, there's no need to be afraid
At Christmas time, we let in light and we banish shade
And in our world of plenty we can spread a smile of joy
Throw your arms around the world at Christmas time
But say a prayer, Pray for the other ones
At Christmas time it's hard, but when you're having fun
There's a world outside your window
And it's a world of dread and fear
Where the only water flowing
Is the bitter sting of tears
And the Christmas bells that ring
There are the clanging chimes of doom
Well tonight thank God it's them instead of you
And there won't be snow in Africa this Christmas time
The greatest gift they'll get this year is life
Where nothing ever grows
No rain nor rivers flow
Do they know it's Christmas time at all?
Here's to you
Raise a glass for everyone
Spare a thought this yuletide for the deprived
If the table was turned would you survive
Here's to them
Underneath that burning sun
You ain't gotta feel guilt just selfless
Give a little help to the helpless
Do they know it's Christmas time at all?
Feed the world
Feed the world
Feed the world
Feed the world
Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmas time again*
