Joseph believes that George Michael’s distinct voice and his talents as a song writer are what made him such a stand out performer.

“George Michael fans are honestly superb, we are always getting five star reviews.”

In terms of what the audience enjoy most, Joseph explained people tend to love George Michael’s biggest hits.

He said: “The favourites are always going to be all the Wham Classics, like Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go and Club Tropicana, and then they always appreciate the ballad types, such as A Different Corner.

“The fans just seem to like them all, providing we can do a good job. I hope I can make George Michael proud.”
