Joseph Sansome has been performing as George Michael for more than 20 years. He told the Recorder: “We will be performing all the George Michael and Wham classics, with production, dancers and musicians.
His favourite George Michael song is Cowboys and Angels. “It’s probably because it’s a very well written song. I like the saxophone solo at the end of it,” Joseph said.
Joseph has never actually met George Michael, but apparently through one of the many fan clubs, George Michael once endorsed one his performances, Jesus to a Child.
Joseph believes that George Michael’s distinct voice and his talents as a song writer are what made him such a stand out performer.
“With all the great songs he was written, he’s like the Paul McCartney of our era.
“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.”
Joseph has also performed alongisde pop stars such as, Bob Geldorf and Billy Ocean.
