Yesterday marked the third anniversary of the Grenfell Tower tragedy, where 72 people tragically died after a fire broke out in the West London block of flats.
The date did not go unmarked by many people, including figures from the music world who have been vocal in their support and drive for justice ever since the tragedy.
The likes of Adele, Stormzy and more took part in 'Remember Grenfell' - a 'virtual tribute' to those who had lost their lives in the fire.
The 1 hour 45 minute event saw various people discussing the fire and its aftermath and remembering the victims.
Adele said: "I want to send my love to all of you today, and let you know that I’m thinking of you, as I always do. Even though we’re having to do this in the virtual world, online, in 2020 Zoom life as it is, it’s still so important for us to mourn together and for us to remember that night and to reflect on that and also reflect on where we are now with that," noting that it was also important to "celebrate the lives that were lived before they were sadly taken that night."

She ended by saying that she was looking forward to being with the community for next year's anniversary. "I’m so sad that we’re not all together today because although it’s always a very somber event when everyone gets together, it’s also beautiful and the kids are running around — I can’t wait to hear all about them,” she said. “And I know that before the anniversary next year that we can all do that and I can’t wait. I can’t wait to be there and I can’t wait to see all of you.”
“I miss you all, I can’t wait to see you all and like I said, I’m thinking of you today more than ever. Stay safe, stay healthy."
Marcus Mumford also took part in the tribute, singing 'You'll Never Walk Alone', while Stormzy gave a short speech, saying: "I said I was just gonna put the camera on and just talk from my heart instead of trying to prepare anything, I didn’t want this to sound like it came from anywhere other than my heart.
“To all the people of Grenfell, we’re still mourning with you, so to anyone watching this let’s use this time, let’s use today to stand in solidarity with them and say that we ain’t forgotten you. We love you, we’re here for you. When the Government and powers that be have turned their back on you, we’re here. We’re here, we’ve got you, we’re not letting this go."
