george michaelPop superzvijezda George Michael iza sebe je ostavio veliki broj vrhunskih glazbenih brojeva koja su osvojili vrhove top ljestvica diljem svijeta. I kao dio dua Wham! i kao solo izvođač, bilježio je velike uspjehe po kojima će biti poznat i nakon svoje smrti. Preminuo je u toplini vlastitog doma u pedeset i trećoj godni života.

Prvi se put pojavio na Billobardovoj ljestvici 1983. s pjesmom "Young Guns (Go For It)" grupe Wham! koja je debitirala na prvom mjestu Dance Club songs ljestvice. U karijeri je ukupno 21. put bio na prvom mjestu Billboardove Hot 100 ljestvice, no najveći hit svih vremena bio je "Faith" iz 1987. koji je proveo četiri tjedna na samom vrhu. Pjesma se nalazi na istoimenom debitantskom albumu čiji su singlovi proveli preko dvanaest tjedana na vrhu Billboardove 200 ljestvica. Album je prodan u više od deset milijuna primjeraka u SAD-u te 1988. osvojio Grammy za album godine.
