Calum Scott Covers George Michael's “One More Try”
British singer-songwriter Calum Scott released a cover of George Michael's “One More Try” on December 2, 2022.
Originally, the cover song was released exclusively via Apple Music as a special playlist to coincide with Pride Month back in June.
The original version of the song was released by British singer-songwriter George Michael as the fourth single from his debut solo album “Faith” in 1988.
The song was written by George Michael and reached No. 1 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and No. 8 on the UK Singles chart.
Calum Scott said of the song, “I wanted a challenge. His talent was undeniable. His writing and his attention to detail, his performances-his vocal is unmatched in terms of tone and quality and consistency. He could perform and write and produce-he was a one-stop shop ... People I've spoken to in the industry that have either worked with him or around him have said how humble or gracious he was, how human he was. He was always putting himself down and thinking he could do better-and that's something that I massively relate to as an artist. Listening to his music just shows how much he cared about what he did. What makes him even more special is all of the charity work he did that he kept completely hidden. He was such a special person and should be celebrated every day.”
On December 25, 2016, George Michael died due to heart disease at his home in Goring-on-Thames, Oxfordshire. He was 53.
