Flamboyant rocker SIR Elton John performed a special charity concert in
Paris yesterday (23JAN05), to raise money for the victims of December's (04)
Indian Ocean tsunami.
The 57-year-old singer entertained a crowd of 2,700 at the French
capital's Bastille opera house, with proceeds going to the FONDATION POUR
L'ENFANCE (Foundation for Childhood), which hopes to rebuild a children's
shelter in Sri Lanka.
During the three-hour concert, John paid tribute to his longterm lover
David Furnish, saying, "Throughout the years, I've done a lot of drugs and
alcohol. It's true that I was a nightmare, impossible. For the last 14 years
I've been normal. Now
my drug is called David."
John will also be contributing to Sharon Osbourne's tsunami charity single
TEARS IN HEAVEN.
