Normally, we don't make a huge deal out of celebrity birthdays but Elton John is a legend. His career has spanned so many decades nearly everyone feels some sort of connection to his music. 

Some of you remember hear his '80s mega-hits like "I'm Still Standing, Sad Songs" and "Candle in the Wind" on the radio when they were new songs. '90s kids remember hearing his voice for the first time on the Lion King soundtrack or the re-release of "Candle in the Wind" he did to honor Princess Diana after she passed away in that tragic car accident. To those even younger, their first exposure to Sir Elton may have been through movies like Kingsman 2: The Golden Circle or his 2019 biopic, Rocketman. There's no doubt about it the pop legend, who turns 74 today, has influenced so many generations.

That's what really impressed me looking around Taco Bell Arena during his sold out "Farewell Yellow Brick Road World Tour" performance in January 2019. He insists that this is really it. After more than fifty years, performing all over the world, he's retiring from touring and entire families (grandparents, parents and teens) came to see his final Boise performance. It was the first and only time that I got to witness him perform live and it was one of the best shows that I've seen in my life!
