George Michael wrote duet for Amy Winehouse

By
George Michael has said that he wrote one of the songs on his upcoming album for Amy Winehouse.

The singer told the Breakfast Show on Magic 105.4 that he never got the chance to give her the song before she passed away almost a year ago.

"There is one I wrote, I was hoping to sing with Amy Winehouse," he said of a ballad on the album.

"I was so in awe of her talent, bless her heart I never got to offer it as a duet."

Michael added that his upcoming album is "the most direct record that I have made since [1987 solo debut] Faith".

After her death last July, Michael paid tribute to Winehouse during a live show and covered her hit 'Love Is A Losing Game'.

Michael recently revealed that Adele turned down the chance to join his Winehouse tribute during a fundraising concert last November.

The ex-Wham man has also described Winehouse as "the most soulful vocalist this country has ever seen" and "one of the greatest singer-songwriters of all time".
