There’s nothing better than when a favorite singer from your childhood is still going strong 30 years later! Enter Boy George, who has recently garnered praise for his collaboration with standout musician Mark Ronson.
First, enjoy this clip of George performing live with his band Culture Club in the early ’80s. Don’t miss his cheeky opening comments…yes, there was even more to Boy George than a soulful voice and daring fashion sense! And speaking of fashion, don’t forget to note his trademark black hat, flawless and colorful make-up, braided hair (often with fabric and ribbon incorporated into the locks) and over-sized clothes.
Now get ready to fast forward…
Next see George performing “Somebody to Love Me” with Mark Ronson and the Business Intl. His voice is the starting point and the anchor of this track, and his recent collaboration with Ronson has been a critical success. This is a GREAT song that merges some amazing musicians!
In the years since his Culture Club days, Boy George has dabbled in fashion design, photography and DJing, all the while continuing to write songs (to name just a few talents). It’s great to see him at the front of the stage again…You’ve still got it, George!
