Sir Elton John Pays Tribute To Friend
It’s all the great performers banding together. At a Pittsburgh concert last night, Sir. Elton John paid tribute to the death of his good friend and super entertainer Elizabeth Taylor. He told the crowd, “today I lost a friend and you lost a hero named Elizabeth Taylor…. She was without a doubt one of the greatest people I’ve ever met in my life.”
So Much More Than an Entertainer
Apart from being such a fabulous entertainer and a true friend to John, it could not be forgotten how much Elizabeth Taylor cared for people who were suffering. As John commented, “she stood up when no one was prepared to stand up and be counted against AIDS.” She truly loved people. He feels she is irreplaceable. During his rendition of ‘Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me,’ Sir. Elton said, “This is for you and your beautiful memory and for all the people you helped and saved.”
Elizabeth Taylor died at 79 years old; may she be remembered for all the good she did.
