George Michael: One Year Ago, The World Lost A Great Singer
January 4, 2018 10:58 By Fabiosa
It is hard to believe that it has already been a year since the death of George Michael. Fans and fellow musicians from all around the world honored the talented late singer.
Who was George Michael
George Michael was more than a singer and songwriter. He was a known philanthropist and an inspiration to many. Although his music is what made him famous, it's his charity work and social justice activism that made him unforgettable.
Michael rose to fame in the 1980s as a part of a music duo called 'Wham!'. Their hit songs Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go and Careless Whisper cemented George as one of the best pop musicians in the world.
His solo career was even more successful with incredible albums such as Faith and Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1. The late singer had sold 115 million records worldwide, which made him one of the best-selling music artists of all time.
Fans pay tribute to George
Unfortunately, George Michael passed away on Christmas 2016, aged only 53. His partner, Fadi Fawaz, found him lying in bed at his home in Oxfordshire. The cause of death is officially natural causes, but that didn't lessen the sorrow.
Now, a year after the death of one of the UK's greatest music stars, flocks of people have joined in prayer outside of his home. Fans expressed their love and appreciation to the late singer.
Gone, but never forgotten
George's incredibly kind spirit and soul full of love made him unforgettable. That's why a year after his death, we should enjoy his greatest hits. Furthermore, we should remember what George meant to the world, and it is in no way a better place now that he is gone.
Fans from all over the world have used social media to share their memories of George.
