Sir Elton Hercules John was born Reginald Kenneth Dwight on 25th March, 1947 in Pinner, England, United Kingdom. He is the best-selling british solo artist of all-time, with 250 recorded sales.

Notable for his collaborations with song-writer Bernie Taupin, John rose to fame with the release of his 1970 hit "Your Song," and 1972 hit "Rocket Man." He then enjoyed success with the following releases of songs such as "Crocodile Rock," "Daniel," "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road," "Bennie and the Jets," "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" (with Kiki Dee), "Are You Ready For Love?" and "I'm Still Standing."

John is is also known for his exuberant glasses and garments, exceptional piano playing, a drug-addiction and for being openly gay. He is in a civil partnership with film producer and director David Furnish, and the two continue to be represented as gay icons in the LGBT community.

In 1997, Elton performed his hit "Candle in the Wind" at Princess Diana's funeral, changing the words that previously tributed Marilyn Monroe to tribute Diana. After vowing to never perform the single live again, he released the single as "Candle in the Wind 1997" (with the B-side being "Something About the Way You Look Tonight") and it is currently the best-selling single in the history of popular music.
