    He has left behind some great songs. Whenever I listened to his slower songs, I was always transported to another space and time. He really has quite a beautiful voice. Cowboys and Angels is one of my all time favorite songs.

    I used to listen to a lot of George Michael when I was younger mainly because my parents only let me listen to 80s music back then. Freedom was always my favorite. May he rest in peace. It’s unfortunate that we never truly appreciate whats in our life until it’s gone.
