Harry Styles + Elton John Pay Tribute To Queen Elizabeth II: Look + Listen

Taking time during their respective concerts, British-born musicians Elton John and Harry Styles paid homage night to Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday night (9.08.)

Knighted by the monarch years back Sir Elton gave a speech about the late Queen during his concert in Toronto, Canada.

“We have the saddest news about the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth,” he said. “She was an inspiring presence to be around – I’ve been around her and she was fantastic. She led the country through some of our greatest and darkest moments with grace, decency and a genuine care and warmth.

“I’m 75 – she’s been with me all my life and I feel very sad that she won’t be with me anymore. But I’m glad she’s at peace, and I’m glad she’s at rest, and she deserves it because she’s worked b**ody hard. I send my love to her family and her loved ones. She will be missed, but her spirit lives on and we celebrate her life tonight with music – okay?”

The English artist subsequently launched into his 1974 single ‘Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me.’

In New York City, Harry Styles asked his Madison Square Garden audience to join him in applauding the Queen’s 70-year reign.

“From my homeland, there was some very sad news today: the passing of Queen Elizabeth II. Please join me in a round of applause for 70 years of service,” he said, leading the applause. “Thank you Madison Square Garden. We’re going to have fun tonight and we’re going to do it together, let’s go.”

Queen Elizabeth II passed away on Thursday (9.08) at her Balmoral estate in Scotland at the age of 96 and she is succeeded by her son, King Charles III, who gave his first televised address on Friday evening (9.09.)
