Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou, better known as the singer George Michael passed away this week. The man was supremely talented, with an incredible voice and sense of style that saw him become an icon.
A leading voice throughout his career, his talent and presence will be long remembered. His influence on music and culture is undeniable.
If you’re not familiar with his music, I’d recommend starting with his singles through Freegal (available here.) Classics like Faith, and Careless Whisper are internationally popular. First reaching the public by being part of the English group Wham! George Michael’s career saw him do everything from toping the charts with catchy pop music, to singing with greats like Whitney Houston and Luciano Pavarotti (check those out via Hoopla.)
