Michael H. was the lead singer for my favorite band. I am inspired by him for several reasons: unlike many top rock musicians, he did not have an ego, when he walked out on stage to perform, he gave his performances everything he had, he was not afraid to be himself, he wrote many heartfelt, inspiring, and powerful song lyrics that continue to be relevant and loved even now. When he sang, it was truly from the heart, and he was real, not phony. Michael was also loved for his ability to connect with people and truly show an interest in their lives. He has also inspired my own creativity. Michael died in 1997, but he lives on through his music. I miss him, even though I never met him in person.
