A remake of ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ to benefit the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire in London has been delayed, because MORE artists have offered to contribute.
We hope to confirm a record tomorrow which will raise some money for the many people affected by this tragedy. Making calls tonight.

X-Factor 2015 winner Louisa Johnson said “The amount of people that have actually agreed to it and gone out of their way to do it is incredible, especially how busy some of these people are.” Organizer Simon Cowell has reportedly lined up Celine Dion, Robbie Williams, James Blunt, Stormzy, Leona Lewis and Rita Ora, many of whom were spotted heading to a London recording studio over the weekend. Cowell reportedly also hopes to also enlist Adele.
Directed by choirmaster Gareth Edmund Malone, over 300 are expected to contribute, including local residents and fire survivors, and is still on track to be released Wednesday.
