The best of George Michael
Grammy-award winning singer, songwriter and producer George Michael was one of the most beloved British musicians of a generation.
After founding the pop group Wham! in 1984 as a teenager in London with his friend Andrew Ridgeley, the two would go on to enjoy enormous success with their worldwide hit “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” and the iconic festive song, “Last Christmas”.
Two years later, Michael embarked on a solo career with his debut album Faith, which went on to sell more than 25 million copies.
In the more than 30 years since he first topped the charts he was a tireless campaigner for charity and LGBT rights and the creative mind behind some of the most beloved hits of the 80s and 90s.
In honour of the late singer, today we’re looking back at some of his most popular songs through the years.
