 WFUV Bulletin Boards : George Michael
George Michael, in my opinion, is a good singer, a competent singer, but he is by no means a great singer.
I also feel that George Michael had (maybe still has) the ability to become a great singer, but he was badly mismanaged for his voice--and he allowed himself to be badly mismanaged.
Considering that George Michael orchestrated his own come-back, and failed musically on the charts, during the last year, by once again trying to "re-enter" the Pop Music world, I have to put the blame on him for allowing himself to be mis-managed.
