The clip shows Arthur sitting at a piano whilst a gentle melody plays in the background.

The singer then lifts his microphone and starts blasting out the chorus of George Michael's 'Careless Whisper' to the hushed audience.

The singer's soul voice sounds incredible singing the 1984 song and we are certain George Michael would be proud of the tribute.

"Always loved performing this", Arthur wrote in the caption accompanying the beautiful video, as his fans took to his Instagram page to praise the star's performance.

"Thank you for doing his song justice", one commentator wrote.

"Your music is soul food...that voice you possess soothes souls," another said.

"Talk about a voice sounding like fine wine," a fan proclaimed, while another said: "I could listen to his voice for the eternity and never get tired of it."
