Elton John: Dedicates song to Elizabeth Taylor
British singer Sir Elton John has dedicated a song to the late Elizabeth Taylor during a recent live performance (check out the video below).
Dame Taylor died of congestive heart failure at the age of 79 on Wednesday morning.
During a concert at Pittsburgh's Consol Energy Centre on Wednesday, John praised Taylor before performing his hit song 'Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me'.
"Today I lost a friend and you lost a hero named Elizabeth Taylor. She was not just a movie star, although she was a huge movie star and there will never be anyone like her again... She was without doubt one of the greatest people I've ever met in my life," he said.
John further expressed his adulation for the film star, calling her "an incredible woman".
"She stood up when no-one was prepared to stand up and be counted against AIDS. She supported everybody in that with 1,000% of her body and her fibre. But most of all she loved people. She fought for the underdog," he continued.
The singer-songwriter added: "God bless you, Elizabeth. God knows how we're going to replace you. This is for you and your beautiful memory and for all the people you helped and saved."
