Artists for Grenfell: Charity Single
Britain's biggest stars in music have come together to record a rendition of Simon and Garfunkel's Bridge Over Troubled Water, with the song being released Wednesday, June 21, one week after the tragedy. Proceeds from the song will be donated to support the victims of London’s Grenfell Tower fire, which reportedly claimed the lives of at least 79 people with this toll expected to rise as authorities continue the painstaking job of identifying victims.
