Details of a charity single in aid of the victims of the Grenfell Tower have been revealed.

Following the catastrophic fire at Grenfell Tower in West London on Wednesday June 14th, the music community has come together.

Over three days from Saturday June 17th, artists from across the music industry have united to record a version of the Simon and Garfunkel classic Bridge Over Troubled Water.

The track has been recorded at Sarm Studios in West London – half a mile from Grenfell.

Simon Cowell said: "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 song is ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’.

"All funds raised will go to The London Community Foundation, who will manage the distribution to those in need."

Bridge Over Troubled Water by Artists for Grenfell was released 8am on Wednesday June 21st, a week after the tragedy. It also aired at that time across BBC radio stations and the Global commercial network. The video will then premiere tonight, Wednesday evening on ITV before Coronation Street. All proceeds collected through Artists for Grenfell will be distributed via The London Community Foundation.
