Abstract

At the Live 8 concert in 2005, pop star Madonna provided one of the seminal images of the day: dressed all in white, she held hands with a young Ethiopian woman called Birhan Woldu (Carr-Brown et al., 2005). As a young child, Woldu had been the icon of the 1984–85 famine, with her emaciated form appeared in the BBC’s news coverage of Ethiopia — and most famously at Live Aid 1985 to the soundtrack of The Cars’ ‘Drive’.
