In 2003 Rosie Danvers and Wired Strings were invited to perform ’The Grave’ live on TOTP with George Michael.
He performed this particular song in response to the impending war in Iraq, to which he was very firmly against.
It is the most incredibly moving performance and so poignant, particularly now that he has passed away.
When working with George, you knew you were in the presence of someone exceptional. A gift to music and to the world.
