Pop stars including Robbie Williams, Rita Ora and members of One Direction have teamed up for a charity single to raise funds for victims of London’s Grenfell Tower fire.

The single, a cover of Simon and Garfunkel’s 1970 song Bridge Over Troubled Water, was organised by music and TV producer Simon Cowell.

All proceeds from the song will go to the London Community Foundation, to assist those affected by the disaster, which saw a fire sweep through the 24-storey apartment block in London.

The track, which begins with an emotional verse from grime rapper Stormzy, also features stars including Jessie J, James Blunt, Craig David, Geri Halliwell and Roger Daltry, each taking turns singing lines from the song.

It’s backed by Queen’s Brian May, Chic’s Nile Rodgers and The Who’s Pete Townsend who provide musical accompaniment, as well as a choir of locals from the tower’s North Kensington community, including survivors of the blaze.
