Rita Ora will be available to take part in the recording of Band Aid 30, an updated version of ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’ in support of the fight against Ebola.
Sir Bob Geldof announced yesterday (November 10) that the likes of Coldplay, One Direction, Sam Smith, Elbow, Jessie Ware, Bono, Foals and more will record the charity single, marking the 30th anniversary of the original Band Aid track.

Ora had been originally on board with the project, but Geldof indicated that she was unavailable to record the song at a London studio on Saturday (November 15) as she will be recording an episode of BBC 1 talent show The Voice.
Now, however, a BBC spokesperson has told Digital Spy that Ora will indeed be free to take part.
“The BBC is more than happy for Rita to take part in the single and The Voice production team is liaising with her management to work around a major diary clash,” they say.
Geldof himself had previously urged the BBC to free Ora up for the event, set to be recorded this coming Saturday (November 15).
