Singer-songwriter George Micheal, who sold tens of millions of albums as a member of the duo Wham! and on his own, passed away at his home in Oxfordshire on Sunday. He was only 53.

Micheal had sold over 80 million records worldwide in a career spanning four decades. He was one of the pop’s reigning stars in the 1980s and ’90s and some of his popular singles includes ‘Wake me up before you go-go’ with Wham! Later he released a pop album in 1987 titled ‘Faith’.

He won a Grammy Award in 1988 for ‘I knew You Were Waiting (for me), ‘a duet with Aretha Franklin, and ‘Faith’ won the Grammy for album of the year.
