Billboard has recently announced that Elton is number one in adult contemporary music.

The entertainer, who has about 30 albums to his credit, has had 16 number one records to date in adult contemporary music. This is a record.

Working in the music industry since 1967, Elton started his career when he was only 15 years old playing keyoards in the local tavern on the weekends. However, he actually has been playing since the tender age of 3.

Elton's sales have totaled over 250 million records. His awards include several Grammy trophies.

Proactive in many charitable events, he has received a knighthood from Queen Elizabeth. His time and generosity have helped others not as fortunate live better lives.
