On Wednesday, Chris Martin performed a moving tribute to the late, great George Michael at the 2017 BRIT Awards with a rendition of the 1986 tune, “A Different Corner.”
In addition to Martin’s performance, George Michael’s former Wham! partner Andrew Ridgeley eulogized the singer, along with Wham! backup vocalists Helen DeMacque and Shirlie Holliman (aka Pepsi and Shirlie).
“On Christmas Day 2016, the greatest singer-songwriter of his generation, an icon of his era, and my beloved friend, George Michael, was lost,” Ridgeley said. “A supernova in a firmament of shining stars had been extinguished, and it felt like the sky had fallen in,” he told the audience.
