The 53-year-old rose to fame as a member of Wham!, known for their hits Careless Whisper, Club Tropicana, Last Christmas and so many others.

Michael – whose real name is Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou – sold more than 100 million albums throughout a career spanning almost four decades.

Michael broke through with Wham from 1981-96, leaving for solo success and an iconic string of songs that were mainstays of the MTV era in the 1980s. Videos for “Faith” and “I Want Your Sex” highlighted the sexuality in his solo career, while he would end up stepping away from a starring role in his videos in lieu of some supermodels for “Freedom ’90.” His later career was possibly overshadowed by high-profile run-ins with the law, but the singer’s talents and accomplishments wouldn’t be forgotten.
