|I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)|
Format 7" single, CD single
I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)" was a song performed by Aretha Franklin and George Michael in a duet in 1987.
It was written by Simon Climie and Dennis Morgan.
The song was a one-off project that helped Michael achieve his ambition to sing with one of his favourite artists, and it reached number one in both the UK Singles Chart and Billboard's Hot 100.
The song was, remarkably, Franklin's first and only UK number-one hit, and only her fourth top ten.
