Mariah Carey calls George Michael an 'inspiration'
The singer tweeted a picture of her and the late star
George Michael passed away on Sunday, but his legacy of pop stardom lives on. Singer Mariah Carey tweeted a tribute to the late star on Monday, calling him a “friend” and “inspiration.”
“George Michael, you were such an inspiration,” Carey wrote. “You were such an inspiration. I’m honored to have not only been your fan, but a friend as well. May you rest in peace.”
Carey accompanied the tweet with tearful and broken-hearted emojis and a picture of her and Michael smiling during a group dinner at a fancy restaurant.
Carey recorded a cover of Michael’s 1988 hit, “One More Try,” in 2014, and Michael was touched. “@MariahCarey thank u for recording One more try. Such an honour 2 have one of the best voices in the world singing my song,” he wrote on Twitter at the time.
