The tragic fire in West London last week has sadly taken the lives of a number of people and an even larger number of families have lost everything they own in a disaster that has seen people from all over London come together in support of everyone affected.

After watching the events unfold on TV and being heartbroken by the footage he saw, Simon Cowell decided to use his power in the music industry to put together a charity single to raise funds for the victims.

Film director Noel Clarke, famed for his Kidulthood, Adulthood and Brotherhood trilogy was seen arriving at the West London studio where the artists recorded the track, so is there a possibility that he will be behind any potential music video for the charity single?

Speaking to a tabloid around the announcement, Simon Cowell said, “We started 24 hours ago and already we’re getting calls coming in, mainly from Brits. A lot of London artists, people like Skepta, Stormzy, Emile Sande, The London Community Gospel Choir all wanted to be involved.”

Simon first revealed his shock at the whole situation on Twitter, saying 'I am watching the footage of the Grenfell Tower fire in London. Heartbreaking.'...

Speaking about the song choice, Simon said, “You’ve got to be really sensitive about what we do here. We listened to a lot of songs and with this, you kind of want do to something where you feel the people involved in this are sending a message to them, as well as raising money, so it felt like the right thing to do.”

With pop stars and Grime artists coming together to support a hugely important cause, this is a hugely emotional tribute to the many people that lost their lives and will undoubtedly raise plenty of money to support all the families affected.
