George Michael has penned a song to thank fans for their support when he was ill.
The 'Praying for Time' hitmaker was hospitalised in Vienna, Austria, late last year with a potentially-fatal bout of pneumonia and now he is feeling better, is using his experiences to fuel his creativity.
He tweeted this morning (04.04.12): "I've been a busy boy in the studio this week, mixing Symphonica and finally ready to write about what happened to me in Vienna and how grateful I am to be given another chance to live and breathe alongside you all in this wonderful world that we share.
"You may recall my reference to those strange individuals who took the time to pray for my death as I lay in my hospital bed back in November but don't think I don't realise how many of you out there prayed for my recovery. I thank you all from the deepest part of my soul.
"And I will repay your unending kindness the only way I know how. With music.
"Yesterday I began to write a song called 'White Light'. It's for all of you, for everyone who prayed for me, for every one of you who has prayed for me, for every person who has stopped me in the streets to ask me how I'm doing, you have made me feel so blessed."
Although the song is only in the early stages, George believes his fans will like the track.
He added: "I promise you it's a blinder. :)"
