In 1992, less than a year after the death of singer Freddie Mercury, the surviving members of Queen held a benefit concert for AIDS research.
The night gave pop culture many iconic performances, including one by George Michael and the surviving members of Queen.
On Sunday, Michael’s publicist confirmed that the famed pop singer had passed away at age 53.
At the time of his performance with Queen, Michael was near the peak of his fame after years of success with his group Wham! and a string of popular solo albums.
Rolling Stone’s review of Michael’s performance heaped high praise on Michael.
“George Michael vocally outstripped everyone else on the bill with his soulful showing on ‘Somebody to Love.”
