A new Hear 'N Aid project is in the works right now! The first Hear 'N Aid project took place in 1985-1986 and was a huge success! That project collected money for food to help the people suffering of famine in Africa, now this second Hear 'N Aid project donates all the income to the Children Of The Night organization. Ronnie and Wendy Dio have supported this organization since it was founded twenty years ago.
There'll be lots of musicians taking part of the project. No names have yet been announced except for some first names: Bruce, Roger, Rob, Ian, Steven and David - use your imagination for the surnames ;).
