Music and entertainment celebrities from around the world have been reacting to the news British singer George Michael has died aged 53 

Sir Elton John Said:

I am deeply shocked. I have lost a love friend the kindest most generous soul and a brilliant artist. My heart goes out to his family and all of his fans.

Wham! bandmate Andrew Ridgeley

"A great loss to his loved ones, his friends, the world of music, the world at large. 4ever loved. A xx"


Boy George

"I am thinking of @GeorgeMichael's family, friends and fans right now. 

"He was so loved and I hope he knew it because the sadness today is beyond words. Devastating. 

"What a beautiful voice he had and his music will live on as a testament to his talent. I can't believe he is gone. I hope the Buddha will hold him in his arms."

James Corden

The Late Late Show host, whose regular Carpool Karaoke slot began when he did it with George Michael for Comic Relief in 2011, said: "I've loved George Michael for as long as I can remember. He was an absolute inspiration. Always ahead of his time."

Paul Young

Singer Paul Young, who performed on the 1984 Band Aid hit Do They Know it's Christmas? with Michael, told BBC Radio 5 live that audiences "connected" with his voice.

He spoke about the time Michael joined him on stage for a Princes Trust Concert to do a duet on Young's hit Every Time You go Away. 

"He was literally straight out of the car, a quick chat on stage, no warm-ups or anything, and he just sang like a bird. Unbelievable really."

The list of tributes seemingly endless
