What a line-up!
Skepta, Stormzy, Craig David, Rita Ora and more will appear on a special tribute single dedicated to victims of London’s Grenfell Tower tragedy.
Simon Cowell, who is organising the track, is compiling a superstar list of artists to contribute to the highly-anticipated single.
Emeli Sande, Robbie Williams, Carl Barat, Celine Dion, Liam Payne, Leona Lewis and James Blunt are among some of the other artists rumoured to feature on the track – which is believed to be a cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’.
The song is set to be released on 21st June, with all profits going towards victims of the disaster.
Following the dramatic incident last week, Simon Cowell announced his plans for the track via Twitter.

Residents of Grenfell Tower have also reportedly been invited to feature on the song, as part of a 300-person choir.
So far 17 people have been confirmed dead in the aftermath of the tragic blaze.
