Wham! star Shirlie Holliman still cries over her late friend George Michael


The former backing singer has kept a low profile since the star’s death, opting to stay out of the limelight as dirty gossips appeared around his death. Holliman says she was just deeply shocked. “None of us were expecting it. He was good before he died, there was nothing wrong with him, so yes, it was a shock…” she said adding that she and George had been united with a strong mutual love. “I miss him and it is so sad for me, we knew each other for over 40 years and we laughed so much together and I have really special memories of him.” She added that she is still too sensitive about it and cannot commemorate George without tears, so she cannot even listen to his songs. “I think George would be happy that it’s out there. He loved making music for people to dance to, for people to enjoy, have fun, to make them smile. Music is George’s legacy. We grew up dancing to his music and he would want people to go out and buy his music and enjoy it in the same way we did. There are generations of people to come and enjoy him yet, that’s what he would love.”
