London, Mar 25 (ANI): Sir Elton John has paid tribute to late Dame Elizabeth Taylor by dedicating a song to her on stage in Pennsylvania.

John, 64, praised her at his concert in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, just hours after her tragic death, honouring her work as an HIV/AIDS activist and her glittering acting career.

“It is a sad day because today I lost a friend and you lost a hero… She stood up when no one was prepared to stand up and be counted against AIDS,” the Daily Star quoted him as telling the crowd.

“God bless you, Elizabeth. God knows how we’re going to replace you. This is for you and your beautiful memory and for all of the people you helped and saved,” he added.

He then dedicated his rendition of ‘Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me’ to Taylor. (ANI)
