PARIS, November 21. /TASS/. Former First Lady of France Carla Bruni will record a French-language version of the Band Aid song to help fight Ebola in West Africa. Bruni will be joined by several French stars in the effort to raise money for countering the spread of the deadly virus.
According to AFP, Bruni translated the song “Do They Know It’s Christmas” into French.
The original song was released in 1984 to raise money for the fight against famine in Ethiopia. At that time, David Bowie, Bono, George Michael and other celebrities took part in recording the song. Former French president Nicolas Sarkozy's wife joined the effort by Irish musician Bob Geldof, who released the first song 30 years ago.
“I managed to convince my friends in France and Germany to organize similar events in their countries. The French-language version of my song will be recorded by Carla Bruni herself,” the French magazine Closer quoted Bob Geldof as saying. Vanessa Paradis, Joey Starr and Isabelle Geffroy aka Zaz confirmed they will participate in recodring the single.
