Sam Smith stopped by BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge and as is customary performed a cover tune, and decided to use his appearance to pay tribute to George Michael. Sam actually covered three songs during his appearance, first he sang the Alicia Keys track “Try Sleeping with a Broken Heart,” and then concluded with a medley of Michael’s “Father Figure” and “Faith.”
“As this is 50 years of Radio 1, they asked me to pick two covers. So I picked the Alicia Keys one and, for my final cover, I wanted to pick my favorite artist of all time," Smith said. "And that is the incredible George Michael."
