The singer filmed the documentary for Channel 4 less than two days before he passed away at Christmas 2016. In the voiceover for the programme he said he felt “picked on by god” for the whole his life. Freedom, directed by George and his friend David Austin, chronicles the making of the 1990 album Listen Without Prejudice and the subsequent legal battle with his record label. He recalls the death of his first love, Brazilian Anselmo Feleppa, who died of AIDS complications in 1993, saying that losing him was the most terrifying moment he had ever gone through, as Anselmo had been his savoir and the companion he desperately needed in his life. But then, when he had lost his mom, he felt kind of cursed. He fell into a deep depression. The Mirror says of the programme: “George speaks very movingly about Anselmo being the first love of his life and how important he was in his life. It is very emotional and he clearly never forgot him and left a huge ­impression on George.”
