Elton was part of the Unforgettable Evening, contributing a one-hour concert at Cedars-Sinai Research for Women's Cancers benefit, at the Beverly Wilshire on March 28, 2000.
Reportedly, ex-manager John Reid was at Cedars-Sinai for alcoholic abuse in 1988.
The event, underwritten by Saks Fifth Ave, raised $1.4 million. When asked by Rita Wilson to perform, there was no hesitation in Elton's reply - plus a promise to return for 'em whenever they call again. In his repertoire, he included a special tribute to honouree Hillary Rodham Clinton.
