You'll always be my very fav male artist. My heart is the saddest. RIP amazing George Michael. I cannot believe it https://t.co/oGJ4kad3xI— Laura Pausini (@LauraPausini) 25 dicembre 2016
Rimarrà un sogno rivederlo con i Queen. Nel mio immaginario l'unico possibile interprete di Freddie. #RIPGeorgeMicheal— Cesare Cremonini (@CremoniniCesare) 25 dicembre 2016

Had the pleasure of knowing George Michael in the 80s. Voice of an angel. Now he can sing for them.— Rob Lowe (@RobLowe) 26 dicembre 2016
Un pensiero e una preghiera anche per George Michael, grande voce, in questo 2016, annus horribilis per la musica.#LastChristmas— Enrico Ruggeri (@enricoruggeri) 25 dicembre 2016
E un altro grande se ne va in questo tenebroso 2016.— Alessio Bernabei (@alessiobernabei) 25 dicembre 2016
Saluto George Michael con grande stima e ammirazione.
Quella volta lì, che cantasti Mercury restituendoci Mercury. Basta quella.— Luca Bizzarri (@LucaBizzarri) 26 dicembre 2016

Ho solo voglia di ringraziare George Michael. Da bambino la sua musica mi ha salvato dalle playlist della mia famiglia in auto. Addio George— Roberto Saviano (@robertosaviano) 26 dicembre 2016

I never told him (mainly because I thought I'd freak him out) but #georgemichael has always been such an influence on me. As a child, his was the first voice I could pick out of the sea of voices I heard on the radio. Before I knew anything about him, I knew his voice. As an adult, I cried when I saw him in concert. His songs and his voice helped to teach me how to sing. I will forever regret not letting him know...Thank you, George, for giving the world your gifts...may you rest in peace.
As you can tell from my face, this was one of the best days of my life, meeting #GeorgeMichael the day we filmed video footage for "Feeling Good". I know every single word of every Wham! and George Michael song, I'm a total superfan. He sent me a handwritten letter once that's been in a glass case ever since! I had several "pinch myself" moments with him over the years, one, thanks to Sharon Stone who called to invite me over for an intimate party for his birthday one year, a night I never forgot...and then the time I sat with his dad to watch his concert in Vienna, and the time I brought my family and friends to see his show, and we were all so emotional! And then my heart goes out to his longtime friend my dear @kathyjeung, who always tolerates that I can't help but tell everyone that's she is the goddess in the "I Want Your Sex" video. George was always lovely with me, and I think his voice (especially live in concert) was absolutely incredible and always moved me to tears. I'm so grateful that he gave me some of his time, and mostly grateful for all the ways his music helped me through my life. My heart is broken that he's gone today.
