The star-studded video for Simon Cowell’s Grenfell Tower charity single has now been released – and you can watch it here.
The A-list collaboration – a cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s classic Bridge Over Troubled Water billed to ‘Artists for Grenfell’ – was released yesterday morning and has already shot to the No.1 spot on the UK iTunes chart.
The video features footage of stars including Robbie Williams, Stormzy, Bastille’s Dan Smith, The Who‘s Roger Daltrey, Rita Ora and more cutting their parts for the single.
The recording studio footage is interspersed with moving photos from the Grenfell relief operation.
One Direction stars Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson, Queen’s Brian May, The Libertines’ Carl Barat, Dua Lipa, Nile Rodgers, Geri Halliwell and Emeli Sandé all appear on the single too.
They’re joined by Leona Lewis, Craig David, Tulisa, Stereophonics’ Kelly Jones , James Blunt, James Arthur, Labrinth, Jessie J and many more.
Cowell says of the single: “Following the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower in West London, the record industry came together to record a single for the victims of the disaster. Over 50 artists gave their time and support to make this happen.”
The X Factor mogul is also encouraging people to donate money to help victims of the fire through an Artists for Grenfell website.
He says: “This website has been built to create a donation page which, together with the money raised by the record, will hopefully encourage people to donate whatever they can to help those who have been affected by this terrible event. All donations made here will be used by The London Community Foundation to help those in need.”
