George Michael – Authenticity Through Music

George Michael was no doubt looked upon as a significant cultural icon. His music garnished many prestigious awards throughout his career. With all the accolades George received, he didn’t want to be regarded as a singer-songwriter with no substance. He believed the best way to write songs that stood the test of time was to be completely personal and authentic.

George, despite his success, battled many years of depression after losing his mother and his partner within a few years of each other. Hiding his sexuality also took a deep psychological toll on him. As a result, George turned to drugs that resulted in time spent in prison. He persevered by continuing to perform.
