George Michael dead at 53

george-michaelIt is so sad to write that it was reported earlier today that singer George Michael died at the age of 53. His publicist has said that he passed away while at home this afternoon.  Police say there were no suspicious circumstances.

George Michael had a string of infectious pop music hits that played a big part of my life. While I’ve not given him much thought recently, he holds a special place in my heart for all the memories his music has brought me over the years.
