Elton John to Perform at Royal Wedding

For those who may be interested; those not interested can keep on truckin' by, LOL!

 

"Elton John will take the stage at the royal wedding ... a fitting choice given the singer's history with Prince Harry, Princess Diana and the Royal Family. 

 

Sources close to Elton tell TMZ the singer is set to perform during Saturday's event ... it's still unclear whether he'll get behind his piano at the church ceremony or at the reception later in the night.

 

Elton's been tight with the Royal Family for years ... he was an extremely close friend of Princess Diana. The two worked together to raise money for AIDS research and awareness of the disease.

 

The singer was also a tremendous source of support for Prince Harry and  Prince William when Diana died in 1997. Elton famously performed "Candle in the Wind" as a tribute for Diana at her funeral.

 

Elton had originally booked shows in Vegas for this weekend, but they were rescheduled months ago due to a "scheduling conflict" ... guess now we know the conflict."

@OKPrincess, @Sweet_Serenity

 

Touching youtube video of Elton performing "Candle in The Wind" at Diana's funeral (with a cameo appearance of George Michael as they arrive.)

 

I just love and tear up when I hear this song. I have it on CD.

This is when we;rereminded that these are real people, not just targets for social media, including forums.  I forgot about this photo and its significance.  It's so...I don't have words, but thank you for posting it, @Sweet_Serenity.
