George Michael Passes Away on Christmas!

It has taken a few days to really let this one sink in but singer George Michael has passed away at the age of 53. The former WHAM! front man turned soloist was found peacefully in his bed on Christmas morning by his partner of about four years. Though he was plagued by scandal, there is no denying that Michael made some of the best music that the eighties and nineties had ever seen, with some of the hottest supermodels of our time, nonetheless. The world was devastated when he announced that he was gay as he looked oh so sexy in his tight denim and leather jacket circa the "Faith" video. That particular song was covered by Limp Bizkit and opened up a whole new generation to Michael's brilliant sound. 

He did duets with legends such as Elton John and Aretha Franklin, both who paid tribute to him on social media, along with millions of fans. He was one of the top tweets after he died and the world won't soon forget him or his music which has found a resurgence on iTunes. Ironically, one of his biggest hits was "Last Christmas" and he left the world on this Christmas. And ICYMI: he was actually the first guest on Carpool Karaoke with James Corden. We will miss him and we hope he is truly at peace!
