EVENING STANDARD - Tues, 7th October 2008
Sir Elton John was named as one of London's 1000 most influential people in the Evening Standard on Tuesday. He was included in the 'Society' section of the list and particularly noted for his work with the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
The listing as it appeared in the Evening Standard:
SIR ELTON JOHN, 61
ELTON JOHN AIDS FOUNDATION
He may hit the headlines for hosting A-listers at lavish parties, but his real legacy is his HIV/AIDS foundation. Established in 1992, the Elton John AIDS Foundation has programmes in 55 countries funding both prevention campaigns and HIV treatments. The musician has raised more than £62 million.
