George Michael was only 53 when he left us on Christmas Day. Just 53. Practically our age. And you can say all you want about 2016 being a cursed year – and yes, it was – but this one feels practically other-worldly. And yet, for those of us who followed George’s professional and personal lives, it wasn’t exactly a huge surprise. But that doesn’t make it hurt any less.
For this memorial show, we decided to try something different. We left it to George to say the words – both in songs, interviews and skits. Our hearts were too empty for the job. Rest in peace, George. And in the meantime, we’ll all be praying for time.
