"Jesus to a Child" is a song by British musician GM... The song peaked at number 1 in the UK and Oz, and at number 2 in the mainland European charts. The song has also become George Michael's highest direct entry in the American charts..Although it was not officially released until 1995, Michael unveiled the song in 1994 during the inaugural MTV Europe Music Awards, where he performed it live in front of Berlin's Brandenburg Gate..The song was a melancholy tribute to Michael's Brazilian lover Anselmo Feleppa, whom he met when performing in Rio de Janeiro in 1991. Feleppa died 2 years later from an AIDS-related brain hemorrhage.. George had been unable to write for the next 18 months as a consequence of his grief, but then penned the words to "Jesus to a Child" in little more than an hour, indicating that the time was right to move on with his Life..Raleased 13 October 1995...
