“Once again, here’s somebody who really proved that he had immense talent over time. If I had to pick a favorite album, it would be Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1. Praying For Time, They Won’t Go When I Go – listen to the singing on those songs! He’s a phenomenal vocalist, with an incredible range of expression.
“I first heard George Michael when he was in Wham! I wasn’t really into that stuff, but when he went solo, I realized what a huge talent he was. Faith was a big step ahead for him, but I would say that it was with his post-Faith material where he really came into his own and matured quickly.
“He has an album called Older that’s really quite good. There’s a song on that one called Jesus To A Child, and every time I hear it, I’m like, ‘Gimme a break!’ It’s just fantastic.”
