Sir Elton John Performs I'm Still Standing In His Garden For One World Coronavirus Concert

Sir Elton John performed his hit song 'I'm Still Standing' at last night's One World: Together at Home concert:

The 73-year-old was part of an incredible lineup which included Taylor Swift, Sir Paul McCartney, The Killers, The Rolling Stones, Jennifer Lopez, Sam Smith, John Legend, Jennifer Hudson and many more.

The One World: Together at Home concert was organised by Lady Gaga and Global Citizen, a charitable organisation, and the gig raised more than $50m (£40m) which will help healthcare workers across the world as well as the World Health Organization.
