Simon Cowell has donated £100,000 to organise a fundraising charity single featuring of some of the UK's most talented artists, young and old. In total we see 52 artists, both collectives and solo artists come together for a cover of the Simon & Garfunkel classic hit 'Bridge Over Troubled Water'.
We see worldwide superstars such as, Bastille, Brian May from Queen, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, and Robbie Williams. Not only do we see some of the most listened to artists from the UK, we also some of the UK's hottest 'underground' artists. Some have now been well received in the main stream like Stormzy and Donae'o, some are still building a huge following like Jorja Smith, Ray BLK, and WSTRN. The UK Rap and Grime scene has been fully appreciated and welcomed on this single.
Check out the full list below:

An amazing gesture to those affected by the fire. It is powerful and moving to see every genre, and a number of generations come together to create such an authentic sound which could play huge part in the recovery of the surrounding areas.
