George Michael was born Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou on June 25, 1963 in East Finchley, London, England. He was one of the biggest-selling recording artists of all time; both as a member of Wham!, and as a solo artist.
George said he would most like to be remembered as a songwriter, but he had one of the most purely beautiful singing voices in the world (which he never really gave himself enough credit for).
He is perhaps best known for the landmark Faith album (his first as a solo act). It spawned hits such as: Kissing a Fool, the title track, One More Try, and the controversial (at the time) I Want Your Sex.
I will have more information and features soon, but I was in a hurry to get this opened.
