Left Handed Celebrities | George Michael
Priceless left handed celebrity find. George Michael was left handed. One of the greatest artists of all time. All of his music is just timeless. How can we forget "Father Figure", "Freedom" "Amazing". The list goes on and on. He was/is a phenomenon and a pop icon.
We loved him in WHAM!, we loved in as a solo artist and we loved watching him perform famous duets. This cutie pie legend worked with other legends like Elton John, Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin and Mary J. Blige. Oh, and he also worked with Miss Queen Bee herself, Beyonce.
We lost this jewel at the age of 53, but he will forever be in our hearts.
