Pop diva Mariah Carey is known for bringing a certain level of emotion to her songs. She always injects whatever she is feeling into her music, and that’s part of why we love her so much. That’s why it’s so fitting that Mariah Carey sang an incredibly emotional tribute to George Michael.
Carey posted a video of her performance in Dubai this Friday, and it is seriously so gorgeous.
While performing, she said of Michael:
We feel you, Mariah Carey. George Michael was an incredible musician and role model. We definitely lost him way too soon.
Back when Michael passed away on Christmas Day 2016, Carey posted an emotional message honoring the musician on her website.
It was very heartfelt and showed how much she cared for the late singer. An excerpt of it reads:
So thank you, Mariah Carey, for this beautiful tribute. We loved your incredibly touching performance, and are right there with you remembering George Michael. He was an amazing talent that changed the face of pop music, and left us way too soon.
