On June 14th, 2017 The Grenfell Tower in west London caught fire and burned for around 24 hours until finally extinguished. This fire has become the deadliest fire in mainland Britain in more than 100 years. Simon Cowell lives in the same borough as The Grenfell Tower and decided to release a star studded single to raise money for those affected.

When we say star studded we really mean it. With more than fifty stars ranging from Stormzy to Craig David to Liam Payne.. Simon brought together all of these artists to sing a cover of “Bridge Over Troubled Water” originally sung by Simon and Garfunkel. This single hit the number one spot on iTunes just two hours after it was released.
