The monumental career of international singer, songwriter and performer Elton John has spanned more than three decades. Since launching his first tour in 1970, Elton has had over 4,000 performances in more than 80 countries. He is one of the top-selling solo artists of all time, with 35 gold and 25 platinum albums and more than 300 million records sold worldwide. The Recording Academy has bestowed Elton multiple GRAMMY Awards, as well as the GRAMMY Legend Award and MusiCares Person of the Year honor in 2000. Three of his recordings have also been inducted into the GRAMMY Hall Of Fame(R). In the early 1990s, Elton collaborated with lyricist Tim Rice on the soundtrack for "The Lion King," earning him an Academy Award. The album produced two top-selling, award-winning singles: "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" and "Circle of Life." The Tony Award(R)-winning Broadway production of "Aida" earned Elton a GRAMMY Award for Best Musical Show Album. "Billy Elliot" was nominated for a record-tying 15 Tony Awards and won 10, including Best Musical. In 1992 Elton established the Elton John AIDS Foundation, which today is one of the leading nonprofit HIV/AIDS organizations. In 1998 the Queen of England knighted him Sir Elton John, CBE. In 2004 Elton received the Kennedy Center Honor for his lifetime contributions to American culture and excellence through the performing arts. In 2013 Elton was honored as the first recipient of the prestigious BRITs Icon Award.

THE 60TH ANNUAL GRAMMY AWARDS will be broadcast live from Madison Square Garden in New York Sunday, Jan. 28, 2018 (7:30-11:00 PM, live ET/4:30-8:00 PM, live PT) on the CBS Television Network. Award-winning host and performer James Corden will host the awards show for the second year.
