George Michael rose to super stardom in the 1980s as on half of the pop band Wham!

The group sold over 25 million records between 1982 and 1986 and had six UK number one singles, including Careless Whisper, before George decided that he wanted to begin to create music aimed at a different audience.

In 1987 George began work on his debut album, Faith, for which he wrote and produced all of the songs.

The album was a huge success and George embarked on his first solo tour in 1988 before attending the 1989 Grammy Awards where he won Best Album of the Year.

Over the following years George began to shy away from his fame, and has spoken publicly of his struggles to come out of gay, something he did not do until 1998, but in 1994 after a period of seclusion, George returned to the public eye with a performance at the 1994 MTV Europe Music Awards where he sang a Jesus to a Child, dedicated to his partner who had died the previous year.

The singer has struggled with drug addiction and illness – in 2011 had to cancel his tour due to a viral infection which left him with pneumonia in an intensive care unit, and in 2013 he was airlifted to hospital following a car accident.

A patron of the Elton John AIDS Foundation, George has often released music, the proceeds of which go to chosen charities.
