Music mogul Simon Cowell rounded up a bunch of superstars for a cover "Bridge Over Troubled Water," which was released on June 21. One Direction's Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson, James Arthur, Bastille's Dan Smith and many others came together for the charity single benefitting the families and victims of the Grenfell Tower fire.
A day after the Grenfell Tower fire tragedy on June 14, Cowell visited the scene and felt moved to put out a benefit single. A few days after that, the aforementioned singers along with Leona Lewis, Jessie J, Louisa Johnson, Robbie Williams, Labrinth and more recorded a new version of Simon and Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Water." Every act puts their heart into the lines they sing and together the Artists for Grenfell are united in spreading hope in beautiful harmony.
The music video for Cowell's "Bridge Over Troubled Water" was also released. A shot of the burned tower opens the clip before every star is shown in the studio cutting their part of the cover. Pictures of people in Grenfell coming together and helping each other on the scene are shown throughout. It's a touching tribute to those affected by the tragedy.
"Bridge Over Troubled Water" by Artists for Grenfell is now available on iTunes and Apple Music.
