Legendary singer and songwriter George Michael has passed away.

The 53 year old died peacefully at his home in Oxfordshire, England, according to his publicist.

“It is with great sadness that we can confirm our beloved son, brother and friend George passed away peacefully at home over the Christmas period … The family would ask that their privacy be respected at this difficult and emotional time. There will be no further comment at this stage.”
