I always loved George Michael's voice. Being a fan wasn't really cool but I couldn't help singing along to his (mostly) infectious songs. But then, every once in a while, his genius shone out. One example is his live rendition of Elton John's "Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me" where Elton John joins him on stage.
The pinnacle of his beautiful voice, is, for me, showcased in his duet with Aretha Franklin; "I Knew You Were Waiting For Me" Aretha is magnificent and George is more than up to the challenge. Even Mark Steyn was a fan.
RIP George Michael, a troubled and talented soul.
