Known all across the planet as a fearless fighter for social issues, Elton John is a true legend. His songs, which are all steeped in his generous spirit, have touched multiple generations of people. But life hasn't always been easy for Elton. Born in a time when expressing one's sexuality is verboten, John fights the pretense that he can't live his life out in the open. With an astonishing musical gift encouraged by his mother, though, he is fated to step into the spotlight-and stay there. His skyrocketing body of work provides inspiration and hope to all who listen.
