Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in the 80’s and dubbed a knight by Queen Elizabeth, John has had a substantial influence on the music industry we know and love today.
Best known for his extravagant outfits and gospel-chorded rock-ballad sound, John has sold over 250 million records to date. The ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’ singer has worked on the Lion King soundtrack and the score for broadway musical Billy Elliot.
While still performing and creating music for his fans, John has taken more of an interest in humanitarian work the last couple of years. His organisation, Elton John AIDS Foundation is an international not-for-profit that funds direct patient care services and AIDS prevention education.
