Rock superstar Elton John has been one of the world's most prolific and successful singer-songwriters since his first Top 10 hit, "Your Song," more than three decades ago. Now, with a recent concert at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, John has established the Elton John Scholarship Fund at Britain's Royal Academy of Music, which he himself once attended on scholarship. With a 90-piece orchestra, a five-piece electric band, and a choir of Royal Academy students conducted by acclaimed film score composer James Newton Howard, John performs lush symphonic arrangements of some of his greatest hits, "Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word," "Philadelphia Freedom," and "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me."
