One of the greatest songwriting teams of all time, Elton John and Bernie Taupin will be this year’s recipients of the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song.
Elton commented on the achievement: “I’ve been writing songs with Bernie for 56 years, and we never thought that that one day this might be bestowed upon us. It’s an incredible honor for two British guys to be recognized like this. I’m so honored.”
The two will be honored with a tribute concert in Washington, DC, on PBS stations nationwide, on April 8th.
