Shocking news came out today that George Michael has passed away at the age of 53. Fans were shocked by the loss, but one person who was really affected by this loss was Elton John. He is speaking out now about losing his friend. The news came out on Christmas. Michael was known for songs such as "Faith" and "I Want Your Sex." He has had many hits over the years.

The news was revealed about George Michael by his publicist. It was shared that George passed away while in his home. They said that he died over the Christmas period, but they didn't say exactly when it happened or if it was today. It was shared that the family is asking for privacy and that they will not be releasing any more information at this time.

His family isn't saying a word yet.

What did Elton John have to say?

Just a few moments after it was revealed to the world that George Michael had passed away, his friend Elton John shared on social networks. He posted a picture of the two of them together and along with it said, "I am in deep shock. I have lost a beloved friend—the kindest, most generous soul and a brilliant artist. My heart goes out to his family and all of his fans. #RIP." This is a hard time for him.

George Michael and Elton John were good friends, but they also did a song together. These two were known for their version of "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me" back in 1991. It was a huge hit even though Elton John did the song as a solo years before.

It sounds like these two working together on the song was what was needed for it to be so big.

The fans would love to know exactly what happened to George Michael or how long ago he passed away, but this is just not being revealed at this time. More information should continue to come out as the word spreads about his death.
