“If you write great songs with meaning and emotion, they will last forever because songs are the key to everything.”
That’s how Sir Elton John, the British rock star knighted by the Queen Elizabeth II in a ceremony at Buckingham Palace, sees how important music is to the world. He is a singer, pianist, and composer who has sold over 300 million records throughout his extraordinary career.
Elton John has been defying norms and performing songs at a theatrical grandeur ever since he started his career in 1962. Since then, he has written music that have spanned generations such as “Your Song”, “Skyline Pigeon”, “Tiny Dancer” and “Candle in the Wind” among others.
His biopic, Rocketman, whose title is based on another one of his famous songs, follows the colorful life and musical career of pop culture icon, Elton John, as he navigates the musical world. Featuring his time as a prodigy of the Royal Academy of Music and his musical partnership with Bernie Taupin, Rocketman will show us that being different is not so bad after all.
