Elton John’s online special raises $8 million for charity


Elton John’s Living Room Concert for America has raised over $8 million supporting charities Feeding America and the First Responders Children’s Foundation.

The one-hour online special, which aired on Sunday night (March 29, 2020), featured at-home performances from Elton, Billie Eilish, Mariah Carey and the Backstreet Boys.

Meanwhile, it has been revealed that Elton wasn’t the first choice to host – an unnamed comedian was originally booked to front the variety show.
