Written by Chief Editor.

On Saturday, David Geffen celebrated his 75th birthday on Saturday in Los Angeles with a host of billionaires and big names.

Elton performed Circle of Life at the Broadway-themed party, thrown by Jimmy Iovine. In attendance were names like Oprah Winfrey; Bruce Springsteen; Paul McCartney; Joni Mitchell; Jennifer Aniston; Warren Beatty and Annette Bening; Dr. Dre; Barry Diller and Diane von Furstenberg; and Disney's Bob Iger.

A source told the New York Post, “Jonathan Groff from ‘Hamilton’ performed, as did Elton, and Tom Hanks emceed the event. Tom was cracking jokes about David’s yacht [the $600 million, 454-foot Rising Sun], saying the boat is so big that you could land a jet on it, and asked how many people at the party had managed to snag an invite onboard.”
