Celebrities brought together by tragedy.

Last week, Simon Cowell assembled Artists for Grenfell – a group of A-list singers to record a charity single for the devastating Grenfell Tower fire that claimed the lives of 79 people.

Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Rita Ora, Leona Lewis, Jessie J, and Stormzy are just a few artists featured on the moving track recorded in honor of those who lost their possessions, homes, and lives in the inferno.

The recording, a heartbreaking cover of Simon & Garfunkel's Bridge Over Troubled Water, also features vocals from Robbie Williams, Bastille, Geri Halliwell, James Blunt, Nile Rodgers, the London Community Gospel Choir, and more British artists.

As for the survivors, the government has acquired 68 luxury apartments in neighboring Kensington to permanently house those left homeless by the fire. The lavish complex includes a 24-hour concierge, swimming pool, and private cinema.

City communities secretary Sajid Javid made the announcement on Wednesday afternoon, saying "it is our duty to support" the residents of Grenfell Tower, whose lives — and, in some tragic cases, loved ones — literally went up in flames.

Our heart goes out to all those affected by this horrible incident. Take a listen to the moving song (below).

Soulja boy cries at BET awards


As tough as he acts, Soulja Boy couldn't help but shed a few tears waterfall from his eyes during the moving tribute to Whitney Houston at the BET Awards.

He wasn't the only one crying though.

Humidity was seeping out of most of the audience's eyes as Whitney's mother, Cissy Houston, sang Bridge Over Troubled Water in honor of her deceased daughter.

It was EXTRA hard to prevent a tear drop from falling once she began welling up too!

All we're saying is, don't be embarrassed for crying on national television, Soulja! A LOT of other peeps were doing the same thing!
