British singer George Michael has died at the age of 53.
California (web desk) George Michael died in the famous touching prominence from the time the prestigious Eurovision singer George Michael 53 years old. He died of a heart attack. George found fame with his song "Wake Me Up bureau-go" Young Guns "and" Freedom "Michael the 1980s and 1990s. It is estimated that these music albums of nearly 10 million copies, a record that was. In addition, numerous Grammy and American Music Awards were their names.
His first solo album "Faith" was released in 1987 with 2 million copies were sold. Disputed words in his songs are being criticized by critics. According to foreign media George Michael on the heights of fame arrived, but they also faced significant criticism for canceling his scheduled tours and interviews. But he said that he would speak for itself.
Michael’s first solo album, 1987’s Faith, confirmed that. With six top-five singles — among them the title track, the then-controversial smash I Want Your Sex and the rhapsodic Father Figure — Faith dominated the charts for much of 1988, and has sold more than 25 million copies worldwide to date.
But Michael’s solo debut, which earned a Grammy Award in 1989 for album of the year, was more than a commercial milestone. Faith’s artful blend of pop, funk and blue-eyed-soul textures made it the first album by a Caucasian artist to reach the top position on Billboard’s R&B chart. Michael’s intense creative involvement — he wrote all the songs, most independently, and also produced — helped reshape the template for pop acts. Even Michael Jackson hadn’t been quite so autonomous, collaborating heavily with Quincy Jones and others on his ’80s megahits.
If Faith clearly demanded a new level of respect, some viewed Michael’s behavior in its wake as self-defeating. He refused to actively promote his much-anticipated follow-up album, 1990’s Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1, and didn't appear in its music videos; for the hit single Freedom! '90, he memorably tapped a bevy of supermodels, among them Christy Turlington and Naomi Campbell, to lip-sync the lyrics. Listen yielded other hits, notably the chart-topping first single Praying for Time, but didn’t approach the massive success of its predecessor. Michael wound up suing his label, Sony Music, for insufficiently supporting him, and a Vol. 2 was abandoned amid legal battles.
He continued to release albums — Michael's last studio effort, the aptly titled Patience, came out in 2004, and his final album was 2014's live Symphonica — but his music career would be overshadowed by his tabloid exploits. Longstanding questions about Michael’s sexual orientation came to the fore in 1998, when he was arrested for lewd behavior after revealing himself to another man, who turned out to be a police officer, in a public restroom in Beverly Hills.
Michael would later make light of the incident, and became more open about his homosexuality. Having lost a partner, Brazilian designer Anselmo Feleppa, to a cerebral hemorrhage in 1993, Michael began a long-term relationship a few years later, with Texas-born businessman Kenny Goss; they split in 2009. The singer, whose charity work dates back to his participation in the 1984 Band Aid single Do They Know It’s Christmas?, also raised money for AIDS research and terminally ill children.
There would be other run-ins with the law for Michael, who between 2006 and 2010 was arrested several times in London for possession of drugs and driving under the influence. Michael was hospitalized in November 2011 in Austria for pneumonia after postponing a series of concerts.
In 2004, the Radio Academy declared that his music had been played on British radio more than that of any artist between 1984 and 2004.
