George Michael Praises Mariah Carey's "One More Try" Cover



Mariah Carey's Me. I Am Mariah... The Elusive Chanteuse may not be pulling in massive numbers, but she has the support of one of the greatest superstars in the world: George Michael. Carey covered Michael's One More Try on her newest album, and Michael is apparently thrilled with it.






Various music critic outlets have also praised Carey's version:

"Backed by a gospel organ and choir, Carey dances over the notes, wringing every ripple out of the tune. She even tailors her worst tics - those endless melismas - using them to mine emotion rather than to falsely impress." - New York Daily News

"She tackles George Michael's ballad "One More Try" by adding a whole new layer of emotion with her high-flying vocals." - Newsday

"...There's also a poignant cover of George Michael's One More Try" - USA Today




Obligatory...
