George Michael will be releasing “White Light” to radio on June 29, 2012,—30 years to the day that “Wham Rap” entered the British Charts.
Most of my fans realise that I dreamed of a career as a singer/songwriter from an early age, but never in my wildest imaginings could I have known that I would still be here thirty years later, healthy, happy, and feeling that I still have so much more music to give. It is miraculous in so many ways. Fate has been so kind to me, as have the millions of people that that have bought records and come to see me play year after year since 1982.
George’s entire statement is available at the official site.
