"We want to thank you firstly for making Listen Without Predjudice Number One again, we were happy, and sad all at the same time," the message reads. "He’d have absolutely LOVED it!! Can’t you just see that beaming smile and hear him say ‘Thank you my Lovelies’?"

The message also included a note on how Michael might want those still mourning him to spend the holidays.

"Yog, who loved Christmas, and always hoped it would snow… would want each of you that admired and loved him, (yes—he knows you did!!) to take a moment, raise a glass, enjoy his music and think of him fondly, making sure to enjoy your time with, and appreciate your family and friends."
