Simon Cowell called and celebs responded.
British artists who have showed solidarity in the wake of the massive fire at Grenfell Tower in London that killed at least 79 people have recorded a charity single for the victims.
Artists such as Rita Ora, Robbie Williams, Stormzy, Pixie Lott, The Who, Louis Tomlinson, and James Blunt recorded a version of the Simon and Garfunkel classic “Bridge Over Troubled Water” over three days from last Saturday.

All the proceeds will go to the London Community Foundation, which will help the residents displaced by the high-rise block fire in West London.
The song was released at 8 a.m. Wednesday across BBC radio stations. A video will premiere on Wednesday evening on ITV at 7:30 p.m.
