George Michael 

Honestly, I’m still mentally recovering from Prince’s and Juan Gabriel’s death and now George Michael left his legacy of beautiful music.Although the autopsy is in progress, his manager said that the British singer died in his sleep. Before his tragic departure, Michael had a long musical career, but also a controversial life.

George Michael was born in England as Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou. Later on professionally known as George Michael. During the early 80s, he was part of a pop duo known as Wham! The British duo became an international success. 

At one point, George had solo hits such as Careless Whisper and Last Christmas during his time in Wham! In fact some countries Careless Whisper is credited to the duo, while other countries credits George Michael as a featured singer. Even though he successfully transitioned to become a solo artist – the pop singer dealt with personal demons and dismal events that marked the singer.

In his early teens, Micheal declared to his closest friends that he was bisexual; however, during his time in Wham! the singer had countless relationships with women. Yet, his female relationships were never serious until he met the Brazilian designer: Anselmo Feleppa.

The six month relationship, Micheal realized he had fallen in love. Sadly, this happiness didn’t last for long. His partner had AIDS and he passed away in 1993.

The pop star continued working on his music which his resume also included a memomir and he dedicated his work to support AIDS research. Although the talented musician had great triumphs with his groundbreaking music, the singer also faced long battles with drug addiction and record label disputes.

After years of legal battles and seclusion, he fell in love again and created more memorable songs. George Michael should be rembered for his originality, boldness and also his kindness. It is with great sadness that now that the song Last Christmas plays in the radio, it is unreal that this was also his last one.

Lastly, on a personal note, I heard George Michael’s music because of my mother. Her favorite song is Careless Whisper and my favorite song is Amazing. Certainly, it is not Christmas without Last Christmas.
