Haim reacts to Stevie Nicks wanting to sing their song to Christian McVie

Amid the love for Fleetwood Mac singer-songwriter Christine McVie, who died on November 30 at the age of 79, one post stands out. McVie's former bandmate Stevie Nicks posted a touching handwritten letter on her Instagram, calling the late singer "her best friend in the whole world since day one in 1975" and lamenting that she wanted Sing a special song to your friend before she dies. Any song in question? Haim's "Hallelujah."

Soon after, Ms. Haim added her own words, paying tribute to the dynamic duo of McVay and Knicks, whom they called a "constant inspiration." "We write this with tears in our eyes," the musical sisters wrote alongside a throwback photo of Nicks and McVay and a screenshot of a note Nicks sent to her old friend.

Nicks specifically referenced Alana Haim's verse from "Hallelujah," which reads: "I had a best friend but she passed away/I wish I could see her right now/You Always reminding me that memories will last/These arms reach out/You protect me like a shield/My long hair walks with me across the fields/You are always with me wherever I go.”

Alana previously confirmed that the poem was about the sudden death of her best friend, Sammi Kane Kraft, who died in a car accident when Alana was 20 years old. Alana wrote in a since-deleted Instagram post (via Genius ), "I've always wanted to pay tribute" to her, and I can never put into words how much she meant to her. I am not the same and I will never be the same. I used to take love, friends, and family for granted. Now, I tell everyone I love every day how special they are to me. "

Haim and Stevie Nicks previously collaborated on a cover of Fleetwood Mac's classic song "Rhiannon." Fans can only hope that one day they'll release a new version of "Hallelujah" as a tribute to McVie.
