What a legend.
Elton John pledged $1 million to the bushfire relief effort during his Sydney gig on Tuesday night.
“To see what is happening here breaks my heart,” he said on stage before launching into ‘Your Song’.
“We must come together and fight.
“This is my bit towards it and I love Australia so much.
“To those that have lost their homes, god bless and I hope that your lives are repaired very, very soon.”
Seeing the fires raging across Australia have left me heartbroken. This tragedy has taken lives, homes and devastated so much wildlife. At my Sydney show last night, I pledged $1 million dollars to support the Bushfire Relief Fund.
God bless, Australia. 🇦🇺❤️
