By now you’ve probably heard the unfortunate news that British singer-songwriter George Michael, whose full name was Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou, has passed away at the young age of 53. We needed a moment to process the loss of one of pop’s greatest icons, but of course, we’d like to pay tribute.

The cause is unknown, but what we do know is that this talented man impacted millions of people through his music. He did have his struggles, but George was at his best when performing.

And we’d like to share some of our favorite moments with you:

1. He made it OK to be yourself (if that meant wearing short shorts and rocking feathered hair.) 

2. He worked well with others.

3. He always had faith. 

4. He could have a laugh at himself.

5. And, finally, he inspired Carpool Karaoke. 

We’ll miss you George. Rest in peace.

Do you have a memory of George you’d like to share?
