George Michael or rather Gorgeous George has always been a part of my life. I feel as though I pretty much grew up with Wham I’m a 66 baby so as a teen the music was always there.
I relate to so many of George’s songs it’s as though we loved and lost at the same time through the years. Kissing a fool was so unbelievably apt - still is- it could have been written for me at that time in my life.
George your beautiful soul smile and heart were all poured into your music for us all to share I can’t thank you enough.
You gave more to us all than you took. I’m so sorry that you couldn’t find peace of mind or a lover that fixed your broken heart 💔
You knew your fans loved you I’m sure. Sleep well gorgeous man.

It was always George. I would rewind and rewatch the "Wake me Up" video twenty times in a row. I would stay up late just to see his new video on MTV. I purchased Wham! tickets, but the concert was canceled shortly after. I saw him twice as George Michael during his Faith tour. So many memories. My goal was to meet him someday. Learning just how accessible he actually was to his fans makes me physically ill. Why didn't I make more of an effort to get to England to meet him? I will never forget such a talented artist. Unfortunately, "some mistakes were built to last." 💔

Like to many others, I have been a Wham! George Michael fan from the beginning. There is an emptiness in my heart. It has taken me two years to listen to Last Christmas. Since his passing I have listened to his amazing voice every day. I have finally been able not to cry at some songs. Unfortunately my husband is not a fan and therefore does not understand my pain. It is comforting to know I am not the only one. I have not been fortunate to see him in concert, but it is amazing to see videos and concert footage posted on social media. Now we just need The Final on DVD! RIP Lovelie, you Have Been Loved, and I am still Blue

In Memory of George Michael
I have been a G.M. Lovelie of ‘George Michael’ for over 35yrs & like so many others from all over the World I was/am Completely Devastated & Shocked at the news I heard from my Son of what happened on Christmas Day 2016.

Memories: 24th October 1983

My Sister, Friend and Myself first went to see George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley as Wham! for their ‘Fantastic Tour’ back in the 80’s when we were love struck teenagers, we were 14 years old at the time but trying to act like 18 years old’s, and it truly was one of the best day’s of my life.

We arrived at the Venue (Top Rank – these were Nationwide back then) and because my Father and the Manager of the Top Rank were friends, we were so very lucky to be able to arrive a good few hours before everybody else.

We had been in there for approx: 30 minutes when low and behold George himself came on the stage and called us over, we could not believe this, here we are about to see our Idol on stage singing all the Classics ‘Bad Boys’, ‘Young-Guns’ and ‘Wham! Rap’ and here he is right in front of us. (As I am typing this, it is as if I am right back there in the moment -Memories are a Magical thing)

Like so many people have stated over the year’s George was really lovely, Sweet, Funny and to my Surprise quite shy also, this was a moment that I knew I would never forget. I was completely hooked, like many other teenage girls, I used to dream of one day making a video (Similar to ‘Club Tropicana’) and asking George to be in the video, (Method in my Madness ha, ha – we can all dream, can’t we?) Learning every single word to his songs and rewinding the video recorder in the 80’s to learn the dance routines of which I am sure, I was not the only teenage girl doing this.

1 Year Later 1984!

Wham! were due to film their ‘Wake Me Up Before You Go Go’ video, it was announced on Radio Luxembourg that if you wanted to be in the video itself, you had to arrive at ‘Brixton Academy Centre by 10 a.m on a Tuesday Morning wearing Fluorescent leg warmers, earrings etc, again I could not believe my luck, I literally begged my father to let me go, but being about 15 years old at the time, he would not allow me to travel to Brixton alone, but agreed if a friend went with me then I could go, oh the excitement, I could not wait to get to school on Monday morning and ask my best friend to go who also liked Wham! She immediately said yes, but neither of us had thought at the time that she would also need to ask her parents, anyway to my despair she was not allowed to go, which meant I was not allowed to go, I was heartbroken and what made it even worse was when the video came on television and I saw those teenage girls touching George’s legs as he ran down the aisle, then the Green Eyed Monster (Jealousy) came out, then soon after this the ‘Careless Whisper’ Video came out, how was I going to cope, more Heartbreak/Jealousy with those two stunning models flaunting themselves with George.

So many young boys were saying at the time that George and Andrew were Gay, of course myself, like many other girls put this down to the boys simply being Jealous, there was no way our George was Gay!

Years Later

Being a Love Struck Teenage Girl previously, and having had George/Wham! Memorabilia and Posters of George from floor to ceiling in my bedroom, it was quite a sad time when the realization came that it was time to grow up, time to leave home and having to take all the posters down from my bedroom wall (Somehow, I didn’t think that any future boyfriends would be too pleased if I had continued in this manner) so I kept as much as I could and gave all the rest of things to Charity.

Listening to George’s music/songs now took on a whole new meaning, like many others, I actually listened to the Lyrics more than I had previously and started to realize that George had a way of connecting with others through his Lyrics with emotions of Joy, Pain, Loss and Love and how George was telling his Life Story through his songs, it suddenly all made sense, from Young teenage boys having fun with tongue- in cheek Lyrics to Faith Album where George sings about the previous two years of his life, to ‘Older’, ‘Listen without Prejudice’, ‘Ladies & Gentlemen’, ‘Patience’, and his last Album ‘Symphonica’ (Although it is believed that there may be more Albums to come that George had previously written, but I guess we will just have to wait in anticipation and see what happens)

Even if you were a True Lovelie or someone who simply liked some of George’s music, I am sure that no-one can deny that George was an Extremely Talented Singer/Song Writer and as soon as you hear any of his songs on the radio you instantly know it his him because of his Unique Voice.

‘George Michael’ to myself & many others all over the World is just simply a Beautiful, Caring & Genuine Person who gave so much to others and helped many people through different stages of their lives through the Lyrics of his songs, when it is believed that all he wanted for himself was to: …. ‘Love others & to be Loved back’.

I could write a book on what ‘George Michael’ did to help others & why he is Loved & so Dearly missed by so many people, but I would probably be here forever.

George Michael
‘You Have Been Loved’
By all your
‘Lovelies & Fans’
We will Never Forget You 💖

I'm the guy the guy that organized together with Friends and the help of Mr Simon Napier-Bell, Wham! Manager, the exibition Wham! 30 years later, in 2016, in Udine, Italy 30 years After the split of the band at the Final Concert. George music crossed the life of several generations. He Will be remembered for his Joy of living and freshness during the Wham period, a pop bomb, and after during the solo career, for his soul attitude made of Deep and energetic ballads together with the sense of melancholy that everyone has inside (It was Easy to identify yourself with his songs). He was a good and sensitity soul (people felt It so this is the reason of his success). I put him together with the greatest: Freddie Mercury, John Lennon, David Bowie. He Will never be forgotten.

It is so hard to describe the impact George had on my life. From the age of 12 I fell in love with the man and his music. He influenced the way I dressed, the way I looked and his music shaped my life and was a constant source of comfort in rough times. His death hit me very hard like losing a close family member. When the stories of about his kindness and charitable giving appeared after he died I felt so proud that finally the whole world would realise finally what a unique and wonderful man he was. I miss him every day xxx

Born June 1963 same as George. Still hard to believe this beautiful man has left us physically but draw some comfort in knowing the soul in his music will stay with me for always . A kind man, full of kindness and integrity. In his words “my songs will tell you more about me than I will” pleased to stay I am still learning 💕

I miss George so much..
I saw 25live and Symphonica twice. G is the most handsome and best singer ever ! I'm born in 1963 like George. I was at Highgate few days ago, a bittersweet expirience. Take care George, love you till the end of time 💜
Jos Santen from Apeldoorn, The Netherlands wrote on October 25, 2018 at 8:01 pm:
Less than a minute ago, I sung 'I Knew You Were Waiting For Me' in karaoke. Though I felt very sober today, I almost started to cry while singing. It is not about the lyrics of this song, but merely about the depth of George's voice. I have never heard any singer whose voice is such a moving blend of despair, hope, both immense masculine strength and vulnerability, human echo in the biggest caves on earth.
His voice recalls so many precious memories of my early teenage years in the late eighties.

It’s getting easier as every day that passes. I still think of him and still play his music every day and I will always think how sad the event was on Christmas Day 2016 but most of the time I don’t cry and I even manage to smile often at the memories of him. Although I still have a lump in my throat when I hear last Christmas and white light

I'm a fan of GM since I watched his video "Wake me up before you go go" when it came out for the first time on TV on AFRTS at the Naval Yanqui Base of Guantanamo, Cuba. I lived in Caimanera, a little town of Guantanamo, since then, I became so fan that I named George Michael to my first and only son who's now almost 27 years old. People say we look like almost the same, GM the singer and me, a coincidence or just the wishes of being like him? 🙂 Of course is very sad to know he's not anymore with us, but at least he has given us his music legacy that I hope all the rest generations would get to know too, cos I always treasure and enjoy it remembering the big man he was. RIP GM!

George inspired me throughout my life. There are no words, I just paint. Please see my Twitter page @carefreegreek for my tribute to George Michael in art form.

George's music is like my comfort food, his music has touched me in so many ways and mean so many different things to me. I loved the "Faith" and "Listen Without Prejudice" period cute guy shaking his behind, but i really connected with him during "Older"period because his music came from a different place. He allowed me to learn how to be myself without shame. He made everyone in some form to heal, love and accept life with him. I am really missing him, hearing his voice through videos. For the post year I listens to his music all day and all nite literally, he was beautiful inside and out. If you're listening Yog........I Will Always Be Your Lovely in the U.S.A

George Michael has shaped a large part of my life. I am a writer and a journalist because of him. I have made friends because of him. I have music that I can always turn to because of him. Facebook.com/lovelies.help came about because of him. We had to honor this amazing singer-songwriter. Thank you, George.

I followed George through everything and not a day goes by without listening to his music and watching him on TV.
