Jesus To A Child

by

George Michael



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

George Michael wrote this song in memory of his Brazilian partner, Anselmo Feleppa, whom he had met during a performance at the Rock in Rio II Festival in Rio de Janeiro in 1991 and who died tragically only two years after. George said once that he had never felt real love until he met Anselmo. That's why he dedicated this song and the whole album Older to his lost boyfriend. (thanks, Sascha - Stuttgart, Germany)

Landon: Yes, George and Anselmo were lovers :)

This was actually the first George Michael song I had ever heard. I fell in love with the smooth, Spanish-sounding melody right away and the lyrics were gorgeous, unlike anything I had ever heard before. What a love these two must have had. Rest in peace, beautiful Anselmo <3
