Singer George Michael finally laid to rest

Three months after his death on Christmas Day, singer George Michael has finally been laid to rest.

The singer was buried next to his mother in London’s Highgate cemetery.

The service was attended by a small group of close friends and family members. His partner Fadi Fawaz attended the service, a feud with the singer’s family set aside.

Also in attendance were many of the singer’s long time friends from the entertainment industry including Wham! band mate Andrew Ridgely, Shirlie Holliman and her husband Martin Kemp, Helen “Pepsi” DeMacque-Crockett, Geri Horner and Kate Moss.

The singer has been buried in a section of the cemetery that is not easily accessible to fans, and the singer’s family have reportedly expressed their hope that his grave will not become a shrine.

George Michael died on Christmas Day, his partner Fawaz discovered his body. The initial postmortem was inconclusive and did not reveal the singer’s cause of death.

The coroner later revealed that the singer had died a natural death, despite only being 53 years old. A heart condition and fatty liver disease were listed as contributing factors to his unexpected death.

There have been suggestions that a public memorial tribute concert may be held later in the year. During his life the singer had secretly donated millions of dollars to charities and a concert may provide additional assistance to the causes closest to his heart.
