Singer George Michael has revealed Adele was emotionally unable to sing a tribute to her late friend Amy Winehouse who passed away tragically last year. The singer was asked to sing a tribute in a fundraising concert, but because she is still coming to terms with her friend’s death, she rejected the offer.
The former Wham! Member explained that he was happy to honour the Back To Black Singer during a fundraise concert last November and decided that he would approach Adele for a duet.
Michael explained whilst he spoke to London’s Heart 106.2: ”We communicated by email and initially what I wanted was for us to sing ‘Love Is A Losing Game’ by Amy Winehouse at the Elizabeth Taylor tribute I did at Covent Garden.
”She was basically telling me she couldn’t. She tried to put one of (Winehouse’s) songs in her own set and she couldn’t even get through it. I think they knew each other from the Brit School (The BRIT School for Performing Arts.)
”They’re obviously musical goddesses but I think the tragedy would have been too much her.”
