George Michael passes away

The BRIT Awards 2012 - ShowWham! frontman and pop legend George Michael sadly died of heart failure on Christmas day. Rising to prominence with Wham! and the perennial Christmas favourite ‘Last Christmas’, then later with his solo career which featured such hits as ‘Careless Whisper’ and ‘Faith’, and with his unforgettable performance at the Freddie Mercury tribute concert, he was one of the most iconic and best selling artists of the 80s. He was one of the most important voices of a generation and, despite being surrounded by controversy in the media in recent years, there is no denying the impact he made on popular music. He will be sorely missed.
