“We enjoy playing with each other, which I think is a pretty important part of this.
If we didn’t, we’d have given it up a long time ago.
The idea when we started was to take five people and keep ’em together no matter what and see what we could get out of it, and we’ve pretty much stuck to that plan.”
(Tom Petty – American Rock star, Guitarist and Singer (Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers) b.1950)

This picture belongs to a series of portraits of Jagjit Singh, the Ghazal King, shot four months ago.
That evening the legendary star gave an amazing performance as usual and I couldn’t think that he would leave so fast…
The singer with a soul-stirring and velevet voice died this morning over a fortnight from a brain haemorrhage, he was 70 year old.

The words below come from BBC News.
“Renowned Indian singer Jagjit Singh has died in Mumbai (Bombay), aged 70.
Mr Singh, who was famed for his semi-classical ghazal songs, suffered from a stroke last month and had been in a coma in hospital ever since.
Popularly known as the “Ghazal King”, Singh sang in a number of languages.
He is survived by his wife, Chitra Singh, who is also a leading ghazal singer.
They had commercial success with songs recorded together in the 1970s and 1980s.
Singh’s admirers say he revolutionised ghazal music and made it accessible to the wider public.
He also sang tracks for a number of popular movies, including Sarfarosh.
He was the first prominent ghazal singer from India in a genre dominated by Pakistani singers.
“He was the first real ghazal singer from India. Before him there were clones. The poetry in his music was beautiful,” actor Anupam Kher said in a tribute.
“His music was gentle, soothing and went to your heart.”
Ghazal singer Pankaj Udhas said that Singh had made ghazal so accessible that his audiences “could sing along with him”.
Jagjit Singh recorded more than 50 albums, many of them major commercial successes.”

“…Well I’ve no daughters, I’ve no sons
Guess I’m the only one
Living in my life
Take care my love, he said
Don’t think that God is dead
Take care my love, he said
You have been loved ”
(From “You Have Been Loved” by George Michael)

 

One more picture of George Michael shot during his extraordinary show Symphonica : The Orchestral Tour.
I am using his words to say that he “brushed my eyes with angels wings, the kind that makes devils cry’…

This is a portrait of Isabelle Staron who came on stage with this song saying it was a girl’s song…
Isabelle is the singer of “Acoustic Five”, they give a folk and country touch to all the rock and pop songs that I always enjoyed…

“I feel so extraordinary
Something’s got a hold on me
I’ve got this feeling I’m in motion
A sudden sense of liberty
I don’t care ‘cos I’m not there
And I don’t care if I’m here tomorrow
Again and again I’ve taken too much
Of the thing that costs you too much…”
(“True Faith” by George Michael)

 

This is a picture of George Michael shot during his extraordinary show (Symphonica : The Orchestral Tour).
The picture is blur but this was the best I could do as I was spellbindingly behaving like a fan and forgetting my camera for a while…
Last night he could have claimed to be “The Voice” as he was reminding the presence of another eternal icon.

“For you I was a flame
Love is a losing game
Five story fire as you came
Love is a losing game”
(Fom “Love is a losing game” by Amy Winehouse)

 

This picture was shot a few minutes ago while Gorge Michael was paying a tribute to the late Amy Winehouse by singing her hit, “Love Is A Losing Game”.
George Michael is back with a brilliant and classy show (Symphonica : The Orchestral Tour).
His voice was never as good as tonight…
