Geri Halliwell has released ‘Angel In Chains’, her tribute single in honour of the late George Michael.
The single, which was announced last week, was released on Spotify this morning – ahead of its official launch on BBC Radio 2 tomorrow. You can listen it to below.
The release has been pushed forward from this Friday (23 June), only two days ahead of what would have been George’s 54th birthday.
All proceeds from the single, which also includes the efforts of former Wham! singer Shirley Lewis, will be donated to Childline.
Describing the charity single, Geri previously said: “When I first heard the sad news of his passing, I was nine months pregnant with my son Monty and I was full of emotions. I didn’t know quite what to do with my feelings so I put it in a song, which became ‘Angels in Chains’.”
George died on Christmas Day last year at his home in Oxfordshire. An inquest into his death held earlier this year subsequently revealed that the singer had died of natural causes.
His former partner Kenny Goss also recently paid tribute to the late singer in a tribute blog, hailing him as a ‘warm and generous man’ and vowing to continue the charitable work of the foundation established by the pair.
