Who is George Michael?

George Michael was a Grammy award singer, songwriter and music producer who made it big in the 80s and 90s as half of a hits factory duo and as a solo sensation.

Early Accomplishments

During his teenage years, he did some busking and worked as a DJ for schools and clubs in his locale.

He is the youngest of the 3 children born to Kyriacos “Jack” and Lesley Panayiotou with his elder ones being sisters Yioda and Melanie.
