Rita Ora, Leona Lewis, Jessie J and more sing 'Bridge Over Troubled Water' for victims of Grenfell Tower fire

Rita Ora, James Blunt, Liam Payne, Jessie J, James Arthur, Geri Halliwell, Leona Lewis, Craig David and numerous other artists got together to lend their voices to Simon & Garfunkel's 1970, classic 'Bridge Over Troubled Water' to pay homage to the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire in London.

The 24 story tower in North Kensington, west London was caught in a massive fire on the 14th of June leading to high number of casualties and bringing the approximate death toll to a whopping 80, and making hundreds of people homeless.

In an effort, initiated by record producer Simon Cowell, some of the biggest names of the UK music industry put together a heart-wrenching rendition of the classic, the proceeds of which will go to helping the ones impacted in the tragedy.
