Sinatra Wrote This Inspiring Open Letter To George Michael In 1990

In 1990, 27-year-old George Michael revealed to the Los Angeles Times’ Calendar magazine that his 1987 chart-topping album “Faith” and the subsequent tour left him on the verge of a breakdown and he just couldn’t cope with another 10 or 15 years of fame. Legendary performer Frank Sinatra read the interview and decided to reply to George Michael. And Sinatra had some very Sinatra-like advice for a young George Michael: “Loosen up. Swing, man”. The powerful letter you can read below ends with this inspiring conclusion: “Talent must not be wasted. Those who have it – and you obviously do or today’s Calendar cover article would have been about Rudy Vallee – those who have talent must hug it, embrace it, nurture it and share it lest it be taken away from you as fast as it was loaned to you. Trust me. I’ve been there”.
