You wouldn't necessarily peg Mariah Carey as a George Michael fan, but it just goes to show how far-reaching the late star's influence was.

Carey covered his song 'One More Try' on her album 'Me. I Am Mariah... The Elusive Chanteuse' and played the song live during her gig in Dubai the other day.

She posted the video to Facebook, saying 'I always loved him; he was a really great person."

After his death in December, Carey had paid tribute to him with a message on her website, saying "George was not only a great musician, he was an active ambassador in the LBGTQ community, pushing for greater understanding, acceptance, and love for all people. He touched so many lives and inspired us all. 'One More Try' on Me. I Am Mariah... The Elusive Chanteuse is a tribute to his influence, in many ways."
