Elton John paid homage to the late Elizabeth Taylor during his concert at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania's Consol Energy Center on Wednesday, as the Piano Man proudly proclaimed that Taylor "was without a doubt, one of the greatest people I've ever met in my life."
The iconic singer delivered an emotional farewell to his longtime confidante, who died at 79 Wednesday.
"She stood up when no one was prepared to stand up and be counted against AIDS. She supported everybody in that, with 1,000 percent of her body and her fiber.”
John then began segueing into his brilliant ballad, Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me."God bless you, Elizabeth,” he said. “God knows how we're going to replace you. This is for you and your beautiful memory and for all the people you helped and saved."
