The stained glass home windows shifted from darkish colours to extra vivid greens and yellows because the band transitioned to the refrain. “You give me hope/ When I get up/ To raise my head excessive/ And take what’s mine/ We search for laughter within the insanity/ You give me hope/ And you give me life,” George sang as he captivated the room.
The track concluded with the complete venue clapping their fingers together with the choir as George smiled and took a bow.
The genderqueer pop pioneers’ first studio album since 1999, Life, is out in just a few weeks and George not too long ago informed Billboard, "I simply really feel that we've made an album that we've been making an attempt to make perhaps since (1983's quadruple-platinum) Colour By Numbers. It's humorous while you say it sounds very Culture Club; We do usually say that about tracks. But it simply feels looser. It's very catchy. The songs are actually sturdy, actually melodic. It simply has an ease about it that I actually like."
