A new portrait of George Michael

March 8, 2017

George Michael had a song :"Like Jesus to a child" that was the first of six singles from the album "Older". "Jesus to a child" was a written by George Michael about his lover Anselmo Feleppa, who died and it made me feel his pain every time I have heard it. So, despite the fame and fortune and many fun times he had, he carried a lot of pain inside..." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zNBj4EV_hAo

 " After Michael's death in 2016, Dame Esther Rantzen, founder of the charity ChildLine, revealed that Michael had secretly donated all of the royalties from the song "Jesus to the child" to the charity. She said "George helped us to reach out to hundreds of thousands of children through his generosity. I met him a couple of times, he approached us, rather than us going cap in hand to him, but it was an intensely personal gift. He didn’t want it to be known or to be part of his image."

She told BBC News that "he really wanted to keep his help secret, it was an intensely personal gift. It meant we could answer more children."- wikipedi
