George Michael - George Michael Sings For Sir Elton

George Michael put on a star-studded charity show in London on Sunday night (06Nov11) to raise money for Sir Elton John's Aids Foundation.
The Careless Whisper singer took to the stage at the Royal Opera House for the black tie event in the British capital in front of celebrity guests including Kylie Minogue, Melanie Chisholm, funnyman David Walliams and the Rocket Man himself.
Michael started the performance 40 minutes late, but received rapturous applause from the audience when he finally started the show, and during the concert he thrilled Sir Elton by playing a cover of one of his songs.
However, Michael couldn't resist poking fun at the veteran star, telling the crowd, "This next song was written by someone I hope has made it in here already - Elton. It's a song he wrote in the late '70s and it's about an ageing pop star. Funny that."
Proceeds from the event will go to Sir Elton's Aids Foundation and the Elizabeth Taylor Memorial Fund, which the star created in honour of the late Hollywood veteran.
