Single Microphone into two ADAU1977s

The ADAU1977 has a built-in Microphone input and Mic Bias circuit.  I have a redundant input
into my system to two ADAU1977s.  I have a single microphone that needs to
connect to one input on each ADAU1977.  How can I connect the single
microphone to the two ADAU1977s robustly so that if one of the ADAU1977 dies or
shorts the mic inputs the other ADAU1977 will still operate correctly with the
microphone?

    Due to impedance issues I would not try to drive two microphone inputs with one microphone. I think the best way is to use two microphones. I do not know what microphones you are using or the amount of space you have. The MEMS microphones are quite small so I would look for even more redundancy by having two microphones.
