Elton John—shadowed by his songwriting partner, lyricist Bernie Taupin—first swept onto the music scene with debut album Empty Sky in 1970. Since then, he has gone on to be one of the biggest names in modern music, releasing hit songs such as "Crocodile Rock", "Rocket Man" and "I'm Still Standing", as well as contributing songs to Disney's The Lion King, composing the music to Billy Elliot The Musical, and celebrating the life of Princess Diana by re-imagining his song "Candle In The Wind 1997"—a single that raised millions for charity. As well as rock symbol, he stands proudly as an advocate for the LGBT+ community worldwide. The music of Sir Elton John is vibrant and timeless pop.
