George Michael sings for Elton John’s charityNovember 8th, 2011 - 1:43 am ICT by IANS
London, Nov 8 (IANS) Singer George Michael organised a star-studded charity bash to help raise funds for veteran singer Elton John’s charitable organisation.
The “Careless Whisper” singer took to the stage at the Royal Opera House in London in front of celebrity guests like Kylie Minogue, Melanie Chisholm, funnyman David Walliams and Elton himself.
Although the performance started 40 minutes late, he received rapturous applause after the show. He also played the songs of Elton John, reports contactmusic.com.
However, Michael did not hesitate to poke fun at the veteran star and told the crowd: “This next song was written by someone I hope has made it in here already - Elton. It’s a song he wrote in the late ’70s and it’s about an ageing pop star. Funny that.”
The proceeds from the event will go to Sir Elton’s Aids Foundation and the Elizabeth Taylor Memorial Fund, which the star created in honour of the late Hollywood veteran.
