George Michael was a friend and mentor to Horner. When he died, she was having trouble grieving. "I wrote these songs out, five of them, but one of them I wrote because George had died on Christmas Day, and I just didn’t know what to do because I’m not his immediate family," she told Lorraine presenter Dan Wootton.
In addition to honoring the pop star in the lyrics, the song is helping a cause he believed in. All the proceeds go to Childline, a free counseling service for people under 19 to which George Michael donated millions. We'll be able to hear the song on June 23.
