During his British Summer Time performance on Friday night, Sir Elton John paid tribute to the late George Michael by singing the classic song Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me.
The 75-year-old star revealed that he missed Michael and as a result dedicated the song to him.
On Christmas Day 2016, George’s lover Fadi Fawaz discovered him dead in bed in his Oxfordshire home. Heart disease was identified as the cause of death following an autopsy.
Introducing the song, Sir Elton John who seemed very emotional said, “I miss him, and we all miss him, and we miss his visage. So, George, I love you and I miss you – here we go.”
During his performance, Elton John also took time to thank frontline medical staffs who sacrificed their lives during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“They did the most amazing job, under the most extraordinary, awful circumstances. ‘I mean, it just came out of nowhere. And the hours they worked, the conditions they worked in, the grief they must have suffered by seeing so many people die and suffering.”
