Wow, another great music artist has passed away. Found out a few hours ago that singer George Michael passed away at his home in England.
George Michael, the British bubble-gum teen idol turned international pop star known for his flamboyant style and sexually provocative lyrics, died on Christmas in England.
He was 53. A publicist reported the death but provided no cause.
Michael, whose real name was Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou, first stepped into the global spotlight in the early ’80s as a member of Wham!, a duo whose brand of blue-eyed soul produced a series of lively hits, including “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go,” “Careless Whisper” and the enduring holiday ballad “Last Christmas.”
I’ve been a fan of George Michael since his Wham days. One of my favorite Wham songs is Everything She Wants.
Check out Hand to Mouth from his cd/album Faith.
Rest in Peace George Michael.
