Founder Sir Elton John performs onstage at the Elton John AIDS Foundation’s 13th Annual An Enduring Vision Benefit at Cipriani Wall Street on October 28, 2014 in New York City.
WEF will honor one of the world’s most successful solo artists of all time Monday, in recognition of his “leadership in the fight against HIV/AIDS.”
Elton John will attend the global gathering of industry leaders, government ministers and activists in order to pick-up an accolade that celebrates his Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF). The initiative, founded in 1992, has raised more than $400 million to support hundreds of advocacy programs around the world.
In a career spanning five decades, Elton John has sold more than 250 million records worldwide.
