Legendary singer Bob Geldof has revealed ‘Skyfall’ hitmaker Adele did not answer his phone calls asking her to join recording of a song to raise money for the fight against the Ebola virus.
Adele did not respond to the calls made by the charity record’s organisers for her participation, reported Contactmusic. “Adele is doing nothing. She’s not answering the phone. She’s not writing. She’s not recording. She doesn’t want to be bothered by anyone,” Geldof, 63, said.
“We made 100 phone calls to Adele because Bob and Midge were desperate for her to take part. But it was complete radio silence back. She didn’t even bother to say she couldn’t do it,” a source from the charity group said.
Boy band One Direction, singers Ed Seeran, Rita Ora and others have recorded the song as a part of charity supergroup Band Aid, which was founded in 1984 by Geldof and songwriter Midge Ure to raise money for anti-poverty efforts in Ethiopia by releasing the song ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’.
