New York, April 10 (IANS) Calling Democrat hopeful Hillary Clinton the most qualified to lead the US, Sir Elton John held a concert here and raised $2.5 million for her presidential campaign. The concert at Radio City Music Hall Wednesday sold 5,000 tickets, media reports said.

The British musician sang his hits “Your Song”, “Border Song” and “Benny and the Jets”.

Putting in a word for his friend’s campaign, he said, “I’ve always been a Hillary supporter. There is no one more qualified to lead America.”

Clinton said, “I believe this country is worth fighting for. So we’re taking our campaign to Pennsylvania (where voting will take place April 22) and all the states that haven’t voted.”

Hillary’s husband, former president Bill Clinton, and their daughter Chelsea joined her on stage.
