Elton John to perform concert for Prop. 8 foes
Hey, anytime Elton John is doing a concert that benefits the LGBT cause, I’m happy to spread the word.
And I’m also happy he’s not performing one for Rush Limbaugh – this time! (I still don’t get why Elton agreed to sing at Limbaugh’s wedding but am just going to have to get over it I reckon.)
My pal Ted Johnson over at Variety reports: Elton John will perform a concert at the Beverly Hills estate of Ron Burkle on Jan. 19 to raise money for the legal challenge to Proposition 8, California’s ban on same-sex marriage.
The proceeds from the event will support the American Foundation for Equal Rights, the org that is pursuing the challenge to the ban on gay nuptials, with Ted Olson and David Boies leading their legal team.
