Carey has been a long-term fan and friend of Micheal, so his death left her deeply hurt. “George was not only a great musician, he was an active ambassador in the LBGTQ community, pushing for greater understanding, acceptance, and love for all people. He touched so many lives and inspired us all,” she wrote on her website as he passed away. Now she’s shared a video of her singing that cover of One More Try at a live concert in Dubai, captioning the video, “We miss you, George Michael.” “I always loved it, I always loved him,” Carey said before starting to sing, “He was a really great person. So we’ll make it through this.”
