"I have a lot of memories about George,especially moments related to his concerts,but I have one of it that is the best day in my
life....my meeting with him!
I had the chance to meet my beloved George on 26 February 2009,on my birthday.
I went to London, the city that I love, 'cause show it to my husband,he had never been there,but I also wanted to try to meet George at least once in my life.
I spotted his car and there was no doubt,it was his house ..
... I began to tremble ... I was sweating, my heart is packed and I tried to think of what I wanted to tell George, but I focused more my head emptied, a real blank page, I thought of NOTHING, I felt that my heart ....
I told my hubby Roberto to prepare the camera while I was preparing my book and my pen ...
This is when I met George back in 96.
Day I'll never forget.
He was just about to go and take hippy for a walk.
He was lovely stopped for a quick chat and photo.
What a lovely genuine guy!
George has always been in my heart since I was fourteen years now have forty two , a life full of good recollections of all yours concerts that went .
My best memory was when I saw him come out of his house in London and I took this pic
MY HEART OUT OF ME .
I wish him all the happiness and healt in the world ,
LOVE HIM TOO MUCH
Firstly, I would like to thank you for your regular updates on George via Twitter.
It’s been essential to us fans over recent days / weeks / months.
I’ve attached my favourite photo of GM, taken at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
It was taken at the postponed Symphonica date at RAH due to his horrible illness so makes it extra special for me.
It’s hard to describe such a beautiful and talented man in just one word, but I’ll say “GIFT”
Voici 2 belles photos de mon concert Opéra Garnier
Un seul mot pour décrire George : amazing !!!
Happy Birthday George !!!
My story as GM lovely started when I was just a little child and in those years George Michael was already a massive star.
I really can not remember why I became so close to his music since my early childhood…
George and his amazing voice have been part of my life every single day in the last 25 years, so it is very hard to choose only one memory…
For sure, the strongest and, maybe, my best memory is the show in Vienna (4th September 2012), my first George Michael’s show and his first Symphonica show after the life-threatening illness, due to we have been so worried about his health.
I was with a friend of mine and other 14000 people, I suppose, listening the fabulous Symphonica Orchestra playing when, suddenly, the lights turned off and the show started about one hour earlier than we expected.
I remember that I was thinking: “OH-MY-GOD!!” and then something like: “Ok, maybe I will collapse in the next few seconds…”.
His voice was the strongest and, at the same time, the more harmonious voice I have ever heard, and I was completely raptured by him and all the show..
The last unforgettable moment of that night was George’s smile at the end, he seemed to be really happy and grateful. The only problem was that two hours went too fast and leaving us the idea to have lived in a dream (LOL), something out of the world...
I will keep all those fantastic memories of that night in the deepest part of my heart and every time I think about them my heart shiver again, as the first time. I really hope to have the opportunity to live such a great moments with him again in the future.
I can only thank GM for every single note and every single word of his songs and I wish him all the best for the next 50 years, full of health and full of love (and full of great music for us, If he wants!).
The Symphonica-Show on Sept 4th in Vienna was the first concert ever for me seeing my favourite singer George Michael finally live on stage.
You can imagine how excited I was... and it was overwhelming!
But lets start from the beginning: first of all it was such an honor (a pleasure) to meet some members of the George Michael Forums in flesh. They all were so lovely people – well, there´s a reason why George Michael calls his Fans „lovelies“...
The City Hall was big, the stage was covered in red curtain and so were the seats.
People were coming into the Hall from every side. Next to me there was a guy who started talking with me about George Michael and he couldn´t believe that I knew so many facts he didn´t know. To be honest: Would I be a big fan if I wouldn´t know his birthday or the year when his solo-career started? He also couldn´t believe that I recognised George´s father from far away.
The audience was clapping after every single song before the show began.
At 8.26pm the lights went out, the stage glittered and the sound started. There was a big shadow behind the curtain – it was George himself standing on stage, still covered with the red sparkling curtain and began singing „Through“, one of his most soulful songs. His voice was incredibly clear and at the end of his song I had tears in my eyes. The curtain opened and I was so thankful just seeing him live on stage and listening to his gorgeous voice. The next songs were as emotional as the first one.
After one hour there was a little break and I went down to ask for an autograph of Jack Panayiotou. He was so kind taking pictures with some lovelies and giving me my third autograph from the George Michael Team. As it is so hard to get George´s autograph, at least I have one of his father! I`ve bought an autograph book for my „George Michael Experience“ and guess who were the first who signed in there? It were Shirley and Lucy, the two GM-Background-Singers whom I met one day before the show. They were so sweet and charming and talked to my friend and me during their break from rehearsals.
During the break there was a big digital clock projected on the red curtain. It was counting backwards. I got back to my seat again and waited for the second half of the show. My heartbeat was constantly on a high level. Then the lights went out once again and he started to sing „Waiting For That Day“. Such a lovely voice. And again tears in my eyes. Then I saw a lot of people goint to the front. After the first song I stood up and went to the front too just as he began singing „Patience“. Unfortunately the security pushed us back to the mixing-table. And there we stood watching the stage from behind.
After „Russian Roulette“ the first tones of „Praying For Time“ were played and everybody stormed to the front – me too! And I was so glad standing in the first row and watching him so big in front of me. Everybody could see his joy when he saw how many people were standing in front of the stage. I think he is much more comfortable when his fans are in front of the stage. After „Praying For Time“ he mentioned the doctors, thanked them for what they did and played „Feeling Good“. Another moment with tears in my eyes.
After that, he went down from the stage and everybody was screaming for an encore. It was bloody loud! After a few minutes he came back on stage and performed a wonderful medley of „Amazing“, „I´m Your Man“ and „Freedom `90“. His Background-Singers came to front of the stage as well and waved to the audience. It really was Amazing. The last encore was „White Light“. One more time he thanked the doctors who saved his life just 10 months before and one could really say that it was such an emotional show for him playing for his lifesavers.
After „White Light“ the final intro came and the lights went on. That was the unmistakeble sign for the end of this gorgeous first Symphonica-Show in Vienna.
It was one of my best days ever!
THANK YOU GEORGE!!!
Ok, favourite George memory:
When George phoned me at work on 17th July 2012.
I was lucky enough to win a competition on Heart radio where George phoned and spoke to me at work live on the radio and gave me tickets to his Symphonica show on 17th October 2012. I couldn’t believe my luck, I sobbed down the phone to him so much I could barely breath let alone speak to him! All I remember was screaming down the phone to him saying ‘George Michael has just said my name!!’ It was the most amazing feeling! I really couldn’t believe that I was talking to my idol on the phone, I was in complete shock and I was on such a high for months afterwards! Later that day I tweeted him saying: ‘I SPOKE TO MY GORGEOUS GEORGE EARLIER!! I can’t believe it, so shocked and I FEEL LIKE THE LUCKIEST GIRL ALIVE! ;-)’
I really couldn’t believe it when he re-tweeted my tweet and replied with: ‘It was nice to speak to you too Kelly……’ (I’ve attached a photo of the tweet!)
That day was like a dream, I truly felt like the luckiest girl alive!
HAPPY 50TH BIRTHDAY GEORGE! Have a wonderful day, I hope you get very spoilt, sending all of my love and BIG kisses on your special day! Love you lots and lots!
