London, June 18 (IANS) Boy band One Direction might reunite for music mogul Simon Cowell's charity single in aid of the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire.

Simon Cowell is bringing in the heavyweights BUT Zayn Malik remains a no show.

The 57-year-old music mogul - who lives close to the tower block in west London which was destroyed in an inferno on Wednesday (14.06.17) leaving at least 17 residents dead and dozens more injured - contacted numerous record labels the day after the horrific blaze to compile a list of artists to record on the single in a bid to raise money to help anyone affected by the disaster.

Simon plans to have the song - which has not yet been chosen - ready for release at the start of next week with all proceeds going to the families.

He said: "We will record it hopefully and finish it Sunday, latest Monday (19.06.17). We already started to get a lot of people calling in saying, 'of course we would love to do it'. I do genuinely believe this will make a difference."

The 'X Factor' judge - who has three-year-old son Eric with his partner Lauren Silverman - would be appalled with himself if he didn't do anything to try and help the victims of the devastating incident which has left hundreds of people homeless.

Artists who could be involved in the charity record include those signed to his Syco label, such as Little Mix, Camila Cabello, Labrinth, and Noah Cyrus.
