My generation grew up with the music of Elton John. His music was and still is what I think of when I remember junior high and high school days. And no matter what you think of him personally, you would have to agree that you also know his music well – and his is a talent that has stood the test of time.
I have many favorite Elton John songs – not the least of which is one of his first hits, the song “Your Song”. It is hard to “cover” his songs – as Elton’s voice is very unique – but I think we may have found someone who can do one of them justice. Last night on American Idol – Casey Abrams gave a very tender rendition of this wonderful song and before youtube pulls it off for copyright infringement for the show – I hope if you did not see it last night live – you can watch it here.
Enjoy and God Bless (and vote for Casey!)
