Artists for Grenfell Collaborate for “Bridge Over Troubled Water”

Artists for Grenfell

In the first place, it is music that becomes the vessel for humanity to come together. Back in 2017, several artists collaborated for the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire. They dedicated the song “Bridge Over Troubled Water” for the victims.

There are reports of 72 deaths in the terrible accident. Moreover, 70 was reported injured. Thankfully, more people were able to escape the devastating fire. The fire is considered as the deadliest structural fire in the United Kingdom since the 1980’s.

It’s touching how the people around the area responded to the needs of their brothers and sisters. It is in these times that we see some semblance of humanity within us.

Not only did the citizens come together, but also several artists collaborated as well. Simon Cowell, together with several artists and musicians, banded together to create a stunning rendition of “Bridge Over Troubled Water.” In other words, they called the collective “Artists for Grenfell.” Particularly, the ensemble featured notable people, including Brian May from Queen, Paloma Faith, Labrinth, Jessie J, Gregory Porter, and the like.  They banded together to demonstrate the compassion of the human heart. Furthermore, all proceeds of this song went to the victims of the fire.

Listen to the spectacular track here:

Bridge Over Troubled Water

The song “Bridge over Troubled Water” is a song by the American music duo Simon & Garfunkel. It was first released in 1970.  Further, the original intention and score already have major influences of the gospel in it.

It was originally from the album of the same name.  Artists like Aretha Franklin, Elvis Presley, and Johnny Cash have famously put their spin to it.

The most important thing to realize is the message of the song. It persuades us that we are not alone in our troubles, and we always have someone to hold onto. The lyrics are blissfully simple, yet they are compelling in their own right.
