Monday night on his Symphonica tour in Prague, George Michael gave fans a rendition of Amy Winehouse's "Love is a Losing Game," then gave them a piece of very personal information - he and longtime partner Kevin Goss broke up.
"It's time to be honest," he said. "My love life has has been more turbulent than I've let on. This man has brought me a lot of joy and a lot of pain."
Michael then dedicated "Where I Hope You Are" to Goss.
As for Winehouse, it's no secret that George Michael was (and still is) a huge fan of the young star who passed away last month. He said:
"Amy was, in my opinion, the most soulful vocalist [we have] ever seen."
George urged Amy's label to re-release "Love is a Losing Game" in the wake of her passing, as it is "the way she should be remembered," and "as one of the greatest singer songwriters of all time, I hope she is at peace now."
His cover of the moving track (above) can only help that cause. R.I.P. Amy.
