The touching charity single dedicated to victims of the Grenfell Tower fire has been released today and it’s incredibly moving.

Artists including Robbie Williams, Stormzy and Liam Payne sing an emotional cover of Simon and Garfunkel’s Bridge Over Troubled Water. Released just days after the tragic blaze which killed at least 79 people, all proceeds of the song will go towards helping the Grenfell relief effort.

All the performers will appear in the song's music video which will debut on ITV at 7.30pm tonight.

Among the emotional performances, Grime rapper Stormzy has been praised for his powerful opening verse. The London-born artist says:

"I don't know where to begin so I'll start by saying I refuse to forget you.

"I refuse to be silenced. I refuse to neglect you.

"As for every last soul up in Grenfell, even though I've never met you, that could be my mum's house.

"That could be my nephew

"That could have been me up there, waving my white plain tee up there

"With my friends on the ground trying to see up there.

"I just hope that you rest and you're free up there."

"That is the beauty of London, the integration makes it so incredible."
