Short clipping from the Democrat and Chronicle newspaper (Rochester, New York) published on 31 Mar 1992 about the Red Hot + Dance album:
George Michael, who’s already given proceeds from his hit remake of Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me to AIDS charities, has donated three new songs for the upcoming AIDS fund-raising album Red, Hot and Dance.
The three tracks Too Funky, Happy and Do You Really Want to Know had originally been recorded for Michael’s upcoming new album, said his publicist, Garvey Michael Rich, in Los Angeles.
Michael opted to release them instead on the follow-up to the Red, Hot and Blue -album, which featured artists like U2 covering Cole Porter songs.
All proceeds from sales of the albums go to AIDS awareness and research groups throughout the world. Remixes of already released songs by Madonna, Seal and PM Dawn will also appear on the Red, Hot and Dance album.
Michael’s live duet with Elton John on Don’t Let The Sun has already sold 700,000 copies. All proceeds from that single went to AIDS education and charities.
