Star-studded Grenfell Tower charity single released

Simon Cowell’s charity single for the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire has been released.

The single, pledged by Simon a day after the blaze in West London, reached top spot within two hours of its release.

Over 50 artists came together to record the single with donations going to help those affected by the fire.

The single begins with a powerful rap from Stormzy: “I refuse to forget to you, I refuse to be silenced, I refuse to neglect you.”

And goes on to say, “That could have been my mum’s house, or that could have been my nephew.”

It then continues into a cover of Simon and Garfunkel’s Bridge Over Troubled Water with various singers doing individual lines.

Liam Payne, Emeli Sande, Bastille’s Dan Smith, Robbie Williams and Roger Daltrey all feature in the single.

The fire, which so far has claimed the lives of 79, has left many residents in Kensington upset and angry.

The single’s release comes on the same day protesters marched on Westminster to demand residents of the tower received local housing.

The single is available to buy on iTunes and to stream on Apple Music and Spotify.

Donations can also be made directly on artistsforgrenfell.com
