George Michael

Finally!  My beloved George Michael is making headlines for music again!  Last month, he released a cover of New Order’s “True Faith” and donated all the proceeds to charity.  The singer announced via Twitter that he’d be recording a cover song for Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding.  He asked fans to make song suggestions (and of course, I picked “When 2 R In Love” by Prince – fingers crossed).  The song will be available for download for free on CNN beginning April 15, 2011.  In lieu of paying to download the track, George requests that you make a donation to the Prince William and Kate Middleton Charitable Gift Fund.  You can learn more and make your donation here.

A few other bits of George Michael news revealed over the last few weeks via his Twitter account:

-He’s making a dance album

-He’ll be touring again (though on a smaller scale than his “25 Live Tour.”)

-He used the expression “Cock Piss Bastard.”  (I just had to throw that in, because I’ve been laughing about that one for days!)  Thanks for that George!

Follow George Michael on Twitter @georgemichael.  Follow According2g on Twitter @according2g.

UPDATE:  The song is Stevie Wonder’s “You and I.”  You can download it for a limited time at George Michael’s official website.
