The show chronicles the amazing journey the singer had with music and his fans. Michael rose to fame as a member of Wham! In the early 80’s. His 1987 solo album “Faith” had four number one hits including the title track, “Monkey,” “Father Figure,” and “One More Try.” He won two Grammy Awards, three Brit awards, three American Music Awards and four MTV Video Music Awards, and in 2023 will be inducted into the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame.
