Simon Cowell planning charity song for victims of Grenfell Tower fire

Simon Cowell says he is making plans for a charity single in aid of those affected by the Grenfell Tower fire.
The music mogul tweeted: "I am watching the footage of the Grenfell Tower fire in London.


"We hope to confirm a record tomorrow which will raise some money for the many people affected by this tragedy. Making calls tonight."

One Direction and Little Mix are both signed to Cowell's Syco Music label.

In 2010 he produced a version of REM classic Everybody Hurts for the victims of the Haiti earthquake, featuring stars including Mariah Carey, Michael Buble, Rod Stewart and Kylie Minogue.

One of Cowell's phone calls could also be to Adele.

The singer was spotted making a low-key visit to the scene on Wednesday night, where she hugged some of those affected.
Cowell has a house in upmarket Holland Park, around half a mile from Grenfell Tower.

Meanwhile, comedian Al Murray has said he will donate all profits from his two shows in London this weekend to those affected by the fire.

He tweeted: "All profits from my Pub Landlord's Summer Saloon shows this Friday and Saturday at the Underbelly Southbank will be donated to the people affected by the Grenfell Tower fire.

"Underbelly will also be matching the contribution up to #10,000."

The move was praised by fans of the comedian, with Twitter user @AndyGilder writing "A noble gesture, young man", while @JamesMcCann6 said: "Have a great couple of nights and thank you for your genuine concern and generosity."
