Artists For Grenfell
Following the catastrophic fire at Grenfell Tower in West London on Wednesday June 14th, the music community has come together.
Over three days from Saturday June 17th, artists from across the music industry have united to record a version of the Simon and Garfunkel classic Bridge Over Troubled Water. The track has been recorded at Sarm Studios in West London – half a mile from Grenfell.
The video will then premiere on Wednesday evening on ITV before Coronation Street. All proceeds collected through Artists for Grenfell will be distributed via The London Community Foundation. To make further donations to Artists for Grenfell, go to the dedicated website www.artistsforgrenfell.com. All proceeds – from both the track and donations - will be distributed via The London Community Foundation.
The following artists kindly gave their time to appear on this track:-
Brian May - Queen
Carl Barât - The Libertines
Gareth Malone & The Choir for Grenfell
Jon McClure - Reverend and the Makers
Kelly Jones - Stereophonics
London Community Gospel Choir
The Who (Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend)
