The boys of One Direction visited the city of Accra in Ghana this month to get a first-hand look at the poverty that exists in many parts of the world.
The trip inspired 1D to team up with the U.K.’s “Comic Relief” charity to record the organization’s official single of the year!
The boys chose Blondie’s “One Way Or Another” to cover for the single in order to represent the unending effort to improve poverty.
In a series of Tweets, Niall Horan spoke about what he saw.
“I’ve seen the slums right in front of me! This is no joke! They really need your help! Poverty is real!,” Niall wrote. “Massive thanks to Red Nose Day for taking us to Ghana! It was incredible! Real eye-opener! We take so much for granted over here!”
The song will be available to download February 13! I really can’t wait!
Taylor was the youngest ever recipient of the John F. Kennedy Center’s Ripple of Hope Award for past charity work, and gave the biggest Country Hall of Fame Museum donation ever totaling a whopping $4 million! She’s also done a lot of work with pediatric cancer charities!
Miley was second on the list! She spent her recent birthday promoting a non-profit that helps find homes for dogs in shelters called Saving Spot! Rescue! She’s also a big proponent of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Save The Music Foundation, and the Starkey Hearing Foundation!
