March 25: Rocket Man

On this day in 1947, Reginald Kenneth Dwight - better known as multi-Grammy winning legend Elton John - was born in Middlesex, England. Since 1969 the singer-songwriter-pianist has toured across the world consistently as a solo performer and with the Elton John band. During his 4-decade career, John has sold over 200 million records.
Disney fans know John from his collaboration with Tim Rice on music for The Lion King - which garnered not only a Best Male Pop Vocal Grammy but his first Academy Award and a Golden Globe. John also collaborated with Rice on Disney's Broadway smash Aida - which earned a Grammy for Best Musical Show Album.
Inducted a Disney Legend in 2006, John has forever carved a place for himself in Disney history.
