Elton John

When Elton John started performing in the 60’s, he kicked off one of the most successful and distinguished music careers of all time. Starting with 1969’s Empty Sky and continuing for well over five decades, this singer/songwriter/piano man sold over 300 million records, while—deservedly—earning practically every musical and social distinction imaginable.

Along with lyricist Bernie Taupin, John released some of the most memorable masterpieces of ’70s and ’80s, from the classic LP Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, to smash singles “Tiny Dancer,” “Bennie and the Jets,” and “Your Song.” His 1997 re-release of “Candle in the Wind” (recast as a tribute to the late Diana, Princess of Wales) sold over 33 million copies worldwide and remains the best-selling American and British single of all time.

Even in his elder years, John maintains a tenacious recording, touring, and Las Vegas residency schedule. Outside of music, he’s known for starting the Elton John AIDS Foundation, advocating for LGBT rights and was even appointed a Knight Bachelor by Queen Elizabeth II.
