George Michael convinced late mother urged him to live during health battle
George Michael is convinced his late mother was urging him to battle back to full health as his life was hanging in the balance during his bout of pneumonia last year.
The former Wham! star was hit with the deadly disease while on tour and spent three weeks unconscious at a hospital in Vienna, Austria as doctors tried to save him.
The Faith hitmaker admits he was lucky to survive his brush with death, and now he's revealed he sensed the voice of his mother, Lesley, willing him to live during his illness.
He tells TV show host Lorraine Kelly, "I would like to concentrate on the fantastic good fortune in dodging the bullet, as it were. In that strange place between life and death, I was definitely feeling my mother kind of basically saying, 'Don't you dare come and meet me yet - I'm not ready, you're not ready'."
Lesley lost her battle with cancer in 1997.
