Through the horrible death of Ryan White, I believe that God used Ryan to wake you up and get you sober because God had great things planned for you, Elton!
I recommend his book on HIV/AIDS, Love is the Cure. He has done a lot of good in Africa (and elsewhere) and recognises that improving attitudes towards disadvantaged and marginalised people in various countries are crucial in the struggle.
What an amazing speech. I wish everyone on earth could hear it.
He loves new music and helping young artists: he gave Brandon Flowers of The Killer's a grand piano-they are dear friends. He's so full of love and been a role model of mine.
You only care about issues concerning the gay population or those of your friends. You don't care one iota about your "fan's," or those who shell out huge amounts of money to buy your music or tickets for your concerts. Your selfishness ripped me off personally of a couple of thousand dollars on August 7, 1998 in Austin, TX, during "The Big Picture Tour." You know what you did, not only to me, but to many others. You are a thief who only thinks of himself. You should be ashamed of yourself.
I love you!!!!!! You are absolutely beautiful!!!
He is both an excellent singer and an excellent speaker.
I love this man more than words can describe! Congratulations, Elton!
Love you, Elton. You are an awesome human being. How wonderful life is while you're in the world
We can help all the groups mentioned. What a wonderful journey you have had.
I hope Elton was appealing to believers when talking about a higher power, after everything he's said about religion. I'm not sure whether or not he believes in any higher power, but I loved his piece at the end about everyone's humanity. I love this man so much
I have loved him since the beginning of my time.
Wonderful speech Elton..Glad that you belive in a higher power now.His name is God which is the higher power and he will give you power as he has musical talent,he will give you power to do good for others such as wanting the need for health care for all people.As you said,no one should be left behind.Thanks for you help and concern brother Elton..
Another example of how awesome this man is. I love how he is so free to talk about his life and mistakes he has made. He has come a long way as a human. He has always been an incredible artist. Love U Elton!
I still want to go back to Soenderborg and hear your concert again and say '' you've saved my life tonight'' <3
I have been to that concert in Tel Aviv Elton mentioned. The atmosphere was amazing. Elton John is a great musician with a big heart. He became part of so many people's lives through his amazing music and he's making an impact also through his amazing humanitarian work. God bless him. May his prayers and hopes come true during our time.
This is a powerful speech & more than 389 people should see it.
WOW , What a powerful speech.Elton you are such a treasure as a person and musician. Thank you for all you do for for everyone. God sure is smiling after hearing your speech.
