George Michael has revealed that Adele declined a chance to pay tribute to Amy Winehouse during a fundraiser concert last year.
The singer explained that he was planning to honour Winehouse during a fundraiser concert last November with a host of his celebrity pals.
"We communicated by email and initially what I wanted was for us to sing 'Love Is A Losing Game' by Amy Winehouse at the Elizabeth Taylor tribute I did at Covent Garden," Michael told London's Heart 106.2.
"She was basically telling me she couldn't. She tried to put one of [Winehouse's] songs in her own set and she couldn't even get through it. I think they knew each other from the Brit School.''
"They're obviously musical goddesses but I think the tragedy would have been too much for her."
Clearly Michael has no hard feelings as he admitted that he still hopes to record with Adele in the future.''
"I would love to do a track with her," he added. "I think she has no plans other than to have a baby right now and I think she wants to lay low for a while and gather herself and to then come back to us relatively soon with some more music and I'd love to be involved when that happens. She's lovely."
Earlier this week, Michael Jackson unveiled the video for his new single 'White Light' which features an appearance from mate Kate Moss.
