Emeli Sande Apologises For Band Aid Lyrics



Emeli Sande released a statement apologising for the Band Aid lyrics. Both her and anqlique kidjo made changes to lyrics,  and recorded the changes, but they didn't make the final cut (hmmm, I wonder why - OP).



ETA: lyrics - for those not familiar with the song..

[One Direction]
It's Christmas time there's no need to be afraid

[Ed Sheeran]
At Christmas time we let in light and we banish shade

[Rita Ora]
And in our world of plenty we can spread a smile of joy

[Sam Smith]
Throw your arms around the world at Christmas time

[Paloma Faith]
But say a prayer and pray for the other ones

[Emeli Sandé]
At Christmas time its hard but while you're having fun

[Elbow]
There's a world outside your window and it's a world of dread and fear

[Dan Smith]
Where a kiss of love can kill you

[Angelique Kidjo]
And there's death in every tear

[Chris Martin]
And the Christmas bells that ring there are the clanging chimes of doom

[Bono]
Well tonight we're reaching out and touching you

[Seal]
Bring peace and joy this Christmas to West Africa

[Ellie Goulding]
A song of hope where there's no hope tonight (ooh)

[Sinead O'Connor]
Why is comfort to be feared, why is to touch to be scared

[Bono]
How can they know it's Christmas time at all

[One Direction]
Here's to you

[Olly Murs]
Raise a glass to everyone

[Bastille]
Here's to them

[Sam Smith]
And all their years to come

[Rita Ora]
Can they know it's Christmas time at all

[Chorus - all singers]
Feed the world let them know it's Christmas time again
Feel the world let them know it's Christmas time again
Heal the world let them know it's Christmas time again
Feed the world let them know it's Christmas time again
Feel the world let them know it's Christmas time again
Heal the world let them know it's Christmas time again
Feed the world let them know it's Christmas time again
Feel the world let them know it's Christmas time again
