Amy Winehouse Tribute ‘Too Much’ For Adele
George Michael recently revealed that he had asked Adele to sing a tribute song to Amy Winehouse at a fundraiser concert last year but it had proved “too much” for the ‘Someone Like You’ singer, who attended the same school as the late, great, Amy Winehouse…
At the time she had been deceased for a little over three months and Adele proved too sad to sing.
“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,” George recently told Heart 106.2 radio station.
“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.
“They're obviously musical goddesses but I think the tragedy would have been too much for her.”
He went on to say that he would love to do a track with Adele, perhaps after the birth of her first child: “I think she has no plans other than to have a baby right now, and I think she wants to lay low for a while and gather herself to then come back to us relatively soon with some more music. I'd love to be involved when that happens. She's lovely.”
