“You can hear pain, you can hear joy – you can hear everything in George Michael.” 

The passing of a legend never goes unnoticed, and the bigger the star, the longer lasting the ripples their death leaves in the industry.

In the newest trailer for his posthumous upcoming documentary, George Michael: Freedom, music legends from Elton John to Mary J. Blige remember the passion Michael infused into his art. "I want to leave songs that will meaning something to other generations," Michael says in an old clip.

Before Lady Gaga, before Kesha, before Frank Ocean, there was George Michael in a leather jacket and a tight pair of jeans. Watch, below.
