In October 1970, Elton John released ‘Your Song’, written with his long-time collaborator Bernie Taupin, which has since been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. 50 Years of ‘Your Song’ is a symphonic celebration of the subsequent years of music-making by the multi-award-winning singer, pianist and composer. Elton John has sold more than 300 million records, had more than 50 Top 40 hits, won five Grammy Awards, five Brit Awards and is an Academy, Golden Globe and Tony Award winner.
