Elton John Donates $1M to Support AIDS Patients During Covid-19 Crisis

The Rocket Man offers a generous donation for HIV/Aids patients to make sure they receive the medical care they need during the global coronavirus pandemic.

AceShowbiz - Sir Elton John is planning to sink $1 million into his namesake foundation in a bid to make sure HIV/Aids patients get the care they need during the coronavirus pandemic.

The 73-year-old "Rocket Man" singer insists the funding will be available in the months ahead.

During an appearance on Miley Cyrus' Bright Minded Instagram Live show on Friday, April 3, 2020, Elton said, "I'm going to stick to my guns with the Aids Foundation and make sure because of this global pandemic that's happening that the people who are suffering from another global pandemic don't get forgotten."

"That's what my foundation has tried to do - help the marginalised, help the poor, help the people who mustn't get left behind. That is my main focus in the next three months - to make sure these people on the HIV and Aids lifeline we give them, don't get forgotten."

Elton has also played a big part in the coronavirus relief effort after stepping in at the last minute to front the iHeart Living Room Concert for America on Sunday, March 29, 2020, which raised more than $8 million for the charities Feeding America and the First Responders Children's Foundation.

The virtual pop festival featured at-home performances from Elton, Mariah Carey, the Backstreet Boys, and Tim McGraw among others.
