As if 2016 wasn’t a year that many felt was depressing, especially with the passing of so many musicians. Sadly, we lost another artist this week: George Michael. He passed away in his home on Christmas Day. My thoughts and prayers are with his loved ones and his fans. Although I’m only familiar with some of George Michael’s hits, I learned how significant he was in the music industry. He was inspiration to many British artists including groups like a1 and Blue.
George Michael was a fantastic artist. I remember hearing the song Careless Whisper in a store one time, during my vacation to the US when I was a kid. I’ve always liked that song since then. Although I grew up in the 90’s , I’ve always enjoyed 80’s music. George Michael’s songs were a part of my 80’s repertoire. I was fascinated to know he was British, making him a part of British Pop culture.
My favourite from the late George Michael from his career as a solo artist were Careless Whisper, and Faith. My fave songs of his when he was with Wham were Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go and Last Christmas.
Rest in Peace George Michael 🙁
