If you’re still mourning the loss of George Michael , you can console yourself through his music on the limited-run tribute channel on SiriusXM.

“Faith” – available on channel 13 and the SiriusXM app – will be available through Jan. 10 and present music from the entirety of Michael’s career, including his early Wham! recordings and duets with fellow music greats Elton John, Aretha Franklin and Queen.

The pop superstar died on Christmas Day at the age of 53. His cause of death was ruled “inconclusive” after an initial autopsy. Police in England, where the singer died, are calling the death “unexplained but not suspicious.”
