The stunning news of the death of the pop singer George Michael on Christmas Day 2016 was met with immediate reaction on social media from other performers. His former Wham! partner, Andrew Ridgely, wrote: “Heartbroken at the loss of my beloved friend Yog. Me, his loved ones, his friends, the world of music, the world at large. 4ever loved. A xx.”

And none bigger than Elton John, who posted a tribute on his Instagram account…

In an unsigned announcement from Sony Music, the label group stated: “George Michael was a supremely gifted artist and a true music icon. Sony Music had the privilege to have worked with him over several decades on a number of his legendary releases, and we join the world in mourning the loss of a great superstar. Our condolences go out to his family during this difficult time.”

On his Facebook page, Paul McCartney wrote: “George Michael’s sweet soul music will live on even after his sudden death. Having worked with him on a number of occasions his great talent always shone through and his self deprecating sense of humour made the experience even more pleasurable.”
