A different Christmas        

In 1985 a group of artists reunited to record a worldwide hit to make everyone think about the famine in Africa. Bob Geldof was the promoter of that project.
In 2005, twenty years after the big event, another concert was given and some of the stars who perfomed in the original concert twenty years ago, like Madonna, performed again to raise money for Africa.
