MORE ABOUT THE ARTIST – RANDALL BUTLER
- What is your favourite performing memory?
Randall: I was working abroad on 6 month contracts performing in some beautiful 5 star hotels in Greece. My family came out to visit me, my dad sings and loves music like I do, he got up and performed ‘Don’t Let The Sun Go Down on Me’ with me for the first time.
- How long have you been a George fan?
I have been a George Michael fan since I was roughly 11 years old. My older brother Michael loved George too, he was always listening to the Faith album when we were growing up and we used to sing along to the songs together.
- What do you like to do in your free time when not performing?
If I’m not working I like to spend time with my dog, she’s a little French bulldog named Cece, she’s a real love! I like to spend time with my family as we’re all really close, socialize with friends and listen to music! I love to dance and cook, dining out and having some wine and I also like to keep fit with long walks and gym classes.
