One Direction is undoubtedly one of the most successful boy bands ever formed. However, #Liam Payne, #Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and Niall Horan shocked the music world when they announced that they were taking a break as a group to focus on their individual careers. Although they are currently in their extended hiatus, a new report revealed that the 1D stars might be reuniting to record a new song dedicated to the Grenfell Tower fire victims.

The English-Irish pop boy band is signed under #Simon Cowell’s record label Syco Records. Even though they don’t perform as a group anymore, the 57-year-old English reality television judge and producer, entrepreneur, and philanthropist is trying to bring all the One Direction members together for a mini-reunion to record lines for his charity single, along with other celebrities.

One Direction reuniting for a good cause

The Sun reports that Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson are already set to take part in the celebrity cover of “Bridge Over Troubled Water.” However, Harry Styles and Niall Horan have yet to clear their busy schedules to join Simon Cowell’s charity track.

The Grenfell Tower fire took 30 lives. Although the June 14 incident was initially thought to be a terrorist attack, Metropolitan police shared that the tragedy has nothing to do with terrorism at this point. As a London resident, Simon Cowell was clearly devastated by the unfortunate event. He then took to social media to share his own way to help the community.

“I am watching the footage of the Grenfell Tower fire in London. Heartbreaking,” the “Got Talent” judge tweeted on Thursday. “We hope to confirm a record tomorrow which will raise some money for the many people affected by this tragedy.

Making calls tonight.”

More celebrities pledged to join and support Simon Cowell's charity track

Rita Ora, Robbie Williams, Leona Lewis and Gareth Malone have pledged to support the single. Lily Allen, Skepta, Stormzy, James Arthur and more are also confirmed to record lines for the “Bridge Over Troubled Water" cover. Adele took it one step further by joining the vigil and consoling the people affected by the tragedy.

Meanwhile, although Zayn Malik was a former member of One Direction, there was no mention if he was asked to join the charity track as well. The 24-year-old “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” singer suddenly left the band in March 2015, noting that he wanted to pursue a solo career with his own kind of music.
