Deon Estus – Heaven Help Me

Heaven Help Me was the debut single from American singer/ bassist Deon Estus. Estus had previously been a member of the 80s group, Wham!. The song, Heaven Help Me, was co-written by Estus and former Wham! group-mate George Michael, who also sang background on the song.

Heaven Help me was the first single from the 1989 album Spell by Estus and the song reached number 5 on Billboard’s Hot 100.

This is one of my all-time favorite songs. I love the dreamy, almost bittersweet, horn arrangement.
