A music venue in England wants to do more than simply bless the rains down in Africa.
The 1982 song by the rock ’n’ roll group Toto will be played for five consecutive hours on Nov. 30 to raise money for an African charity, the BBC reported. Disc jockey Michael Savage will begin playing the song at 11 p.m. and will loop the song until 4 a.m.
"What started out as a really stupid idea from a stupid drunken night out has become a stupid reality," Savage told the BBC. "I feel quite sorry for the bar staff, they're going to be really stuck in the middle."
Savage is hosting the music marathon to raise money for Temwa, a charity based in Bristol that supports people in the rural northern areas of Malawi, the BBC reported.
