Elton John Dedicated Song to Grieving Vanessa Redgrave


The British singer performed a rendition of 'I Guess That's Why They Call It the Blues' for the actress during a Rainforest Fund concert.

Sir Elton John showed his support for grieving actress Vanessa Redgrave at a concert in New York on Thursday night, May 13 - dedicating a song to the star after she lost her daughter, brother and sister in a matter of months. The 73 year old has faced a series of personal tragedies in recent months - her daughter Natasha Richardson died last year following a skiing accident, and the grief was compounded by the tragic deaths of her brother Corin, who passed away in April, and her sister Lynn, who lost her battle with breast cancer earlier this month.

Redgrave turned out to support Sting's eco-friendly charity the Rainforest Fund at a fundraiser at Carnegie Hall this week, and the "Rocket Man" showed his appreciation for her appearance at the event by dedicating a track to her during his performance.

Before launching into a rendition of "I Guess That's Why They Call It the Blues", Sir Elton told the crowd, "She's had a hell of a year. Vanessa, this is to you with love from me and all the artists on the stage."
