“Jesus to a Child”- R.I.P. George Michael

Hi everyone. I’m sure you’ve already heard about singer George Michael’s unfortunate passing on Christmas Day. 2016 has been a brutal year for celebrity deaths. For whatever reason/reasons, society has always taken celebrity deaths very hard and personally. I think I’ve taken several celebrity deaths pretty hard, especially this year. Their works of art somehow resonated with me at some point in my life. I’ve related with their movie scripts, literary works and/or song lyrics. Even if we didn’t personally know a celebrity, we feel like we did through their artistic masterpieces. For example, we related to them when they went through a breakup or fell in love just by listening to their song lyrics. We’ve also related to them having fun in life and even losing someone close. 

I’ve been a George Michael fan since I was a kid growing up in the 80’s. At times, I’ve felt like I could relate to some of his love songs especially when I got older. I’ve been listening to his solo and Wham! music for the past few months. I didn’t know which song of his to include today. I eventually decided on “Jesus to a Child.” According to Wikipedia, George Michael wrote the song as a tribute to his late lover, Anselmo Feleepa in 1994. Because of George Michael’s grief, he was unable to write music or perform for more than a year. Before every live performance, he dedicated the song to his late lover. I’ll quote what YouTube user Randy P said in the comments of this song: “He’s with his beloved Anselmo now. R.I.P. beautiful George. Thank you for touching me so deeply with your voice and your music.”

  1. Thank you for your comment! George Michael definitely left us too soon! A lot of what you say makes so much sense. I’m still listening to his music a lot these days.

  2. I am still completely heartbroken over George Michael’s shocking passing. Just a few months ago he denied talk that he was struggling with a horrendous substance abuse problem. He even said on Twitter something to the effect, “Please do not believe this rubbish you have been hearing, my lovelies.” Of course, people suffering from that level of addiction are often in denial even to themselves. I do not know for sure what he died from, but it is a similar situation to Prince’s. These multi-millionaires have EASY access to ANY drug WHENEVER THEY WANT. Also, Christmas Eve 12/24 was his mother’s birthday. I do not believe he ever got over her passing & I think possibly he may have made the choice to join her on her birthday. I just wish he would have hung in there (for our sake, if for no other reason). He could have called me any time of the day or night and I would have been there for him as a friend. I do not think he really understood how much he was/is loved and cherished. Or maybe he did but hated himself. Whatever the circumstances…..I LOVE YOU FOREVER, GEORGE MICHAEL!!!

  3. I remember listening to his music, as well as the other major music stars of that time…Prince, Madonna, & of course, Michael Jackson. Such a shame that so many of them are gone, & at such an early age. He will be missed.
