The Queen song in front of David Bowie

AS THE world mourns the loss of George Michael, there’s a video doing the rounds that captures his musical brilliance better than any other.

In the five-minute clip, Michael sings the Queen song Somebody to Love during rehearsals for the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert which was held at Wembley Stadium in 1992.

With David Bowie and Seal watching from the side of the stage, Michael absolutely nailed the rehearsal, even though he later confessed it was the hardest song he had ever sung in his life.

“It’s ridiculous,” Michael said according to Is This the Real Life?: The Untold Story of Queen,

“One minute it’s up here, one minute it’s down there.”

Michael was just one of the huge stars that performed at the tribute concert that raised money for AIDS research following Freddie Mercury’s death in 1991.

“It was the proudest moment of my career, but mixed with real sadness,” Michael said after the performance.

Elton John, Axl Rose, Liza Minnelli, David Bowie, Seal and Robert Plant all performed Queen songs with the three remaining members of the group in front of the 72,000-strong crowd.
