The great musical icon, George Michael, passed away on December 25, leaving all his fans around the world, completely devastated. Despite having died almost two months ago, the British singer, George Michael, will not be buried until March, due to doubts that still exist about his death and that have generated a series of tests by the local police.
The 53-year-old artist died of cardiac arrest at his Oxfordshire mansion in London, but the “inconclusive” result of the autopsy prompted authorities to order the body to perform a toxicological test, the results of which will not be before the end of February.
British police are betting that the singer of “Fastlove” died because of an overdose of drugs, besides ruling out the participation of third parties in his death. His family especially his father are very affected by the situation since they want to give burial soon to his remains.
George Michael will rest in peace next to his mother
While defining how his funerals will be, it transpired that the singer had acquired a plot in the Highgate Cemetery in north London.
Although it is hermetic about the organization of the funeral of George Michael, some British newspapers say that his friend Elton John will be one of the artists who will act in his farewell. Likewise, it is speculated that the singer will have two ceremonies, one more intimate with his family and friends, and another for the fans.
The musician will be buried next to his mother in the cemetery Highgate, in the north of London. Michael had acquired a plot there when his mother, Lesley, died of cancer in 1997. “It’s what he would have wanted,” a source close to the singer said. “George’s love for his mother always remained as strong, and he said he hoped to be with her again,” a friend added.
As many will know, Elton John and George Michael shared more than the stage or the profession; On the personal level were very good friends (some say maybe “something else”). However, the bond that they maintained was very particular, and after the departure of George, Elton was of the first to talk about this sad event.
As confirmed on Metro UK, two funerals will be offered to say goodbye to the singer; One for family and friends, and one for fans. Such ceremonies will be held in London, as George will be buried with his mother in the Highgate cemetery in the north of the country. And to honor his friend in the best way, Elton John will offer a musical number during the funeral. Rumors suggest that the British composer will perform ‘Do not Let The Sun Go Down On Me,’ a song performed by Michael for the first time in 1991.
