He has won a Tony, two Oscars, a Best British male artist BRIT Award, and an induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, alongside a Kennedy Center Honor for his lifetime contributions to American culture and excellence through the performing arts. Since 1992, the Elton John AIDS Foundation has raised more than $450 million for HIV prevention, treatment, and advocacy programs across the globe.

Incredibly eclectic show

Love discovering new music on Elton’s show. The hour flies by! He’s a great, genuine host who is actually interested in his guests. And the range of music is really interesting — I’ve found dozens of new tracks over the years from Rocket Hour. Please never stop!
