George Michael; a highly talented artist

By S.H.Moulana

I have been following George Michael from his ‘Wham!’ days when he was very young.

The two numbers of his I still loved are ‘Last Christmas’ and ‘Careless whisper’. It is strange that he died on the day of Christmas when the festivities were on.

It is an open secret that he had an unwinnable battle with drugs which has claimed many outstanding talents in the recent years in UK and in US.

Born to a Greek immigrant father and an English mother George from his young days has shown that he had enough talent and a great future.

I loved very much his style of singing and very especially the two songs I mentioned above. The musical accompaniment in ‘Careless whisper’ is simply outstanding.

Although detail about his death is not given it is supposed to be peaceful as per reports.

I am stuck for words at a time like this for my favorite singer, who has entertained millions of his fans all over the world until he breathed the last on this Christmas day.

While I am writing this I can hear his ‘Careless whisper’ is being played in my CD player, what a song!

Rest in peace George!
