As we approach the first anniversary of the sad death of Amy Winehouse, it’s been revealed that Adele turned down the chance to sing one of the tragic star’s songs with George Michael, because she was too upset.
In an interview with Heart 106.2, George explained:
“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 Amy’s songs in her own set and she couldn’t even get through it. I think they knew each other from the Brit School.”
Although their paths didn’t actually cross at Brit School, the pair later became friends. Adele dedicated her cover of Bob Dylan’s Make You Feel My Love to Amy’s memory, when she performed it on her most recent tour.
