The single is a cover of Simon and Garfunkel's classic 'Bridge Over Troubled Water'.
It opens with a heartfelt rap verse from Stormzy.
"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"
Stars including Robbie Williams, Labrinth and Leona Lewis then trade lines with Grenfell's local choirs.
