On the 14th June a catastrophic fire ripped through Grenfell Tower, a 24-storey tower block in West London, claiming the lives of 79 and injuring many others.
Now, just a week later, singers from every genre of music have come together to feature on a charity single, with the likes of Robbie Williams, Anne-Marie, Dua Lipa, the London Community Gospel Choir, this year’s Britain’s Got Talent winner Tokio Myers and British singer Rita Ora who grew up very close to Grenfell Tower.
The single is a cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s 1970 hit ‘Bridge over Troubled Water’ and you’ll be able to hear it from later today.
As well as downloading the single, public can donate through the Artists for Grenfell website.
The music video for ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ will be premiered on TV later today just before Coronation Street on ITV.
Below is the full list of artists involved with the charity single.
Brian May – Queen
Carl Barât – The Libertines Craig David
