Michael hails Carey's One More Try cover

Carey included her rendition of One More Try on her latest release, Me. I Am Mariah... The Elusive Chanteuse, and Michael reached out to her via Twitter on Wednesday to express his delight.

He tweeted: "@MariahCarey thank u (sic) for recording One more try. Such an honour 2 (sic) have one of the best voices in the world singing my song. Gorgeous @MariahCarey ...... PS, love the album! Big kiss, The singing Greek."

The note caught the attention of Carey, who admitted she was flattered by the praise, responding: "@GeorgeMichael I'm so honored u (sic) like my rendition of One More Try. You & this song have always meant so much to me. Fan&friend for life".

She later sent a special message to the veteran singer, who celebrated his 50th birthday on Wednesday, writing: "@GeorgeMichael P.S. Happy birthday!!!!".

Michael's Twitter exchange with Carey occurred just a day after mutual pal Donatella Versace offered up her take on the song in a review for Vogue and claimed the Brit would love the cover.

She wrote: "I can't stop listening to Mariah's rendition of One More Try. George Michael is a great friend and one of my favourite artists, so I never think that anyone can do justice to his music.

"But I feel that Mariah really understands every word that he has written. At times her voice is angelic, at times pleading and then, towards the end, it goes into a crescendo reaching amazing heights.

"I'm sure that George would be very proud of Mariah's version of his much-loved song."
