George Michael: 'A master' of pop - BBC arts editor

Singer George Michael has died at the age of 53.

The star began his career in Wham! in the 1980s, before becoming a hugely successful solo performer, selling millions of records and winning awards worldwide.

The BBC Arts Editor Will Gompertz told the Today programme that Michael's great skill was an ability to "write, perform and produce platinum plated pop songs".
