British pop star Elton John is not only one of the most important musicians of all time, according to Billboard. The 75-year-old may appear on Friday before US President Biden at the White House. He should also be honored for his life’s work.
British pop legend Elton John is honored with a performance at the White House. The singer of hits such as “Rocket Man” and “Candle in the Wind” will perform at an event in the garden of the White House on Friday, a spokeswoman said. The evening, themed “A Night When Hope and History Rhyme,” will be hosted by U.S. President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden.
The evening will celebrate the “unifying and healing power of music,” as well as “the life and work of Sir Elton John,” according to the White House. In addition, dedicated citizens should be honored.
John’s Farewell Yellow Brick Road global farewell tour began in Pennsylvania in September 2018 and is expected to conclude in Sweden next July. The 75-year-old was named the top solo artist on Billboard’s 2019 list of the greatest musicians of all time and third overall after the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.
Pop star pays tribute to Queen Elizabeth II
Most recently, the British pop star caused an emotional moment when he paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth II at a concert in Toronto, Canada, for the “inspiring presence” in his life and then sang one of his biggest hits to her. He interrupted the show at the Rogers Center in front of tens of thousands of fans after it became known that the monarch had died.
“She has guided the country through some of our greatest and darkest moments with grace, grace and genuine warmth,” said John, who is close to Royalty and known as Sir since the Queen knighted him in 1998.
Elizabeth II was also the head of state of Canada. He is happy that the Queen is now “calm”. She has served the country for a long time and worked very hard. “We’re celebrating her life tonight with music,” John yelled to the cheering crowd, then intoned his hit song, “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me.”
The singer and pianist also provided a particularly touching moment at Princess Diana’s funeral in 1997, singing a rewritten version of his ballad “Candle In The Wind”.
