The 'Burn' singer chats about how she was asked to sing, and which stars she's excited to see.
Ellie Goulding cannot WAIT to sing on Band Aid 30… and spoke to us EXCLUSIVELY about how her involvement with the charity single came about.
It was announced earlier this week that the 'Anything Could Happen' star is will be part of the all-star line-up for this year's 30th anniversary re-release of 'Do They Know It's Christmas?', all to raise money to fight Ebola in West Africa.
And now Ellie's chatted exclusively to Capital's Max about how much the cause means to her, how she got involved… and how much she's looking forward to singing with the other Band Aid 30 stars!
"Sir Bob Geldof called me! And he was very lovely and he asked me over the phone. I was like, 'Have you got the right person?'," Ellie told us this week. "That was literally how it happened.
"I've performed in front of some of them before at various things but I think this is the kind of situation where I don't think anyone's going to be worried about that," she explained. "I think that the cause is so important that I think everyone's going to throw any ego out the window.
"I think everyone's going to be really cool. The people that I've met before that are going to be down there are super cool," she added. "I think it's going to be really lovely."
Among the other stars for Band Aid 30 are artists like Ed Sheeran, Adele, One Direction, Olly Murs, Fuse ODG, Sam Smith, Emeli Sande and Coldplay's Chris Martin.
