Stephen Gately’s last song was The Little Drummer Boy with Ronan Keating

It has emerged that the last time the late Stephen Gately sang in a recording studio, was when he recorded backing vocals for his pal Ronan Keating.

Keating releases his album ‘Winter Songs’ tomorrow and the track ‘The Little Drummer Boy’ features Stephen Gately.

Ronan told The News Of The World: “What keeps me going is that Stephen is on this album.

“His vocal on Little Drummer Boy is one of the most beautiful recordings.

“He is almost angelic – which is truly fitting as I believe my friend is an angel now.”

A source said that the friends had “great fun” while recording the track at Sarm studios in central London.

The insider added: “Ronan wanted Stephen to do the backing vocals because he thought his voice would be perfect for it.

“They were so pleased to be recording together again and the end result was great. Stephen was in good spirits and kept saying how excited he was for Ronan’s album. You would never have believed it would be the last time he sang in a studio.”
