British singer and pop icon George Michael passed away on December 25 after a sudden heart failure.

 

Michael, who was 53 years old, died peacefully at his home in Goring, England, but his family gave no further details about his death.

“The family would ask that their privacy be respected at this difficult and emotional time. There will be no further comment at this stage.” – Family statment

Before the family’s statement, the police had issued a statement calling the death “unexplained but not suspicious” and added that “a post mortem will be undertaken in due course.”

Michael, who achieved stardom early in his life, had a life and career full of controversies.

While he gave us many chart-topping hits that blended soul and dance music, his daring social and personal commentary over the decades always kept him in the news.

Michael was one of the biggest musical giants of `80s and `90s and enjoyed immense popularity thanks to songs such as “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go,” “Young Guns (Go For It),” “Careless Whispers,” and “Freedom” which became international chart-topping hits.

Though he reached the very heights of success early, he agonised over being a celebrity.
