The death of George Michael on Christmas day shocked the world. And this not only because his hit Last Christmas has been playing all over since 1984. He was just 53 years old.
A day after his death was announced everything about him has been written by international media and the world mourns.
KTG’s tiny contribution is to remind of a concert in Athens, Greece, in summer 2007.
George Michael entered the stage holding and waiving the Greek flag.
Knowing what his audience wants, he entered the stage with the flag making his concert an unforgettable moment for everyone there.
He said in Greek “thank you for the 25 years…”
His concert in Athens was part of the world tour “25 Live”.
George Michael was born Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou on 25 June 1963 in London. His father was a Greek-Cypriot, his mother British.
He is best known for his work in the 1980s and 1990s, initially as a member of the music duo Wham!.
His best sold singles have been “Last Christmas”, “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” and “Careless Whisper.”
He was best in live performances.
According to media, George Michael died in his bed most likely due to a heart attack. He was found in his bed by his partner Fadi Fawaz, a celebrity hairstylist.
In this damned year 2016, the world lost some of its finest song writers and singers: David Bowie, Prince, Leonard Cohen, George Michael…
And then I read this comment on Twitter:
and so the year 2016 thought: Why take singers one by one? Let’s have a mass stage exit – and it took several in one strike
Several singers, more than 60 members of the Russian Military Choir Alexandrov Ensemble are among the dead of the Tupolev plane crash in the Black Sea on December 25th 2016.
What a year!
