Other musicians mourn too
Elton John sings to the Queen

Sir Elton John knew the Queen personally. In 1998 she even knighted him. In Toronto, the British singer reacts emotionally to her death during an evening concert. And some of his fellow musicians have been deeply affected as well.

Sir Elton John paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth II for the “inspiring presence” in his life at a concert in Toronto, Canada – then sang one of his biggest hits to her. The pop legend suspended the show at the Rogers Center in front of tens of thousands of fans on Thursday after it was announced 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 has been closely associated with 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 song, “Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me.” The singer and pianist already provided a particularly moving moment at the funeral service of Princess Diana in 1997 and sang a rewritten version of his ballad “Candle In The Wind”.

Sting silently cried for queen

Other stars are also emotional about the death of the British monarch. Sting even says she shed tears. “I have cried softly for the Queen, I am sad for my country and what it has lost,” the musician tweeted.

Ex-Beatle Paul McCartney posted a photo of the young queen on Twitter with the words: “God bless Queen Elizabeth II. May she rest in peace. Long live the king.”

Abroad, the great grief for the Queen may be perceived as strange, the inventor of Harry Potter’s apprentice, JK Rowling, wrote on Twitter. “But millions felt affection and respect for the woman who fulfilled her constitutional role for 70 years without complaint.” The Queen has drawn a thread through the lives of most Britons. “She became an enduring, positive symbol of Britain around the world.”

Simon Cowell, music manager and judge of talent shows such as America’s Got Talent, paid tribute to the Queen for directing with much love: “I consider myself lucky to have had a monarch in my life who has managed to make great things happen. Balance between leadership, tradition and progress.”

And Mick Jagger also thought of the late Queen Elizabeth II. “Her Highness Queen Elizabeth II has been there all my life,” the Rolling Stones frontman wrote on Twitter. “I remember watching her wedding highlights on television growing up. I remember her as a beautiful young woman, right down to the country’s beloved grandmother.”
