One of the George Michael videos making the rounds in the wake of his death has a special poignancy: It includes not only Michael but another lost music star of 2016, David Bowie. The clip (see it here) shows Michael rehearsing for a 1992 tribute to Freddie Mercury with his rendition of "Somebody to Love," reports Mashable. Standing against a wall, next to Seal, is Bowie, clearly enjoying the show. Michael once said that getting to perform the song live on behalf of the late Mercury was "the proudest moment of my career," notes the Independent. (More George Michael stories.)
