In a heart warming display, George Michael’s fans from all over the world gathered in the town of Bushey, Hertfordshire – where the singer grew up – to celebrate his life and music in a special memorial service.
The pop icon who died last Christmas was buried in the Highgate Cemetery in north London after a private funeral service. The area is restricted and is not open to the public.
Fans from all over the world, who wanted to pay a final tribute to the star, gathered for a special memorial service organized by the George Michael Appreciation Group founder, Tracey Wills. The service was held at St James The Apostle church after which the celebration moved to the pub where Andrew Ridgely and Michael first formed Wham! in the 1980s.
Since his death, many people have come forward with stories of George’s generosity. The star made anonymous contributions to many good causes. George Michael was as generous with his money as he was open about who he was. He lived a life of pride and donated freely and willingly without harping on about it. He was a star in every sense of the word. It’s no wonder people traveled from far and wide to pay their last respects to the man.
Rest in peace, George. You are, and you will be, missed!
