Also the lyrics of Candle in the Wind will be auctioned
The original written lyrics of a large number of mega hits of Elton John will go under the hammer. The lyricist who for years and years, Elton John has collaborated cleans are archives on.
The lyrics of Candle in the Wind, Rocket Man and I’m Still Standing in november will be auctioned at Julien’s Auctions in New York. The expectation is that the sheets with the text of Candle in the Wind, the song Elton John sang at the funeral of princess Diana, the most money is going to muster.
The song was after the funeral of Diana, one of the biggest hits of all time. There were more than 33 million copies sold; in the Netherlands took the song seven times platinum. Elton John sang the song after the funeral of his good friend, never in public.
Diana died at the end of August 1997 in a car crash in a tunnel in Paris. A portion of the proceeds from the auction will go to the Aids Foundation of Elton John.
