Rocket Hour

Elton John’s career has spanned more than five decades. On his Apple Music Show, now over 300 episodes in, the international singer-songwriter and performer brings in special guests and has thoughtful conversations with established and rising stars—in many cases sharing music from his comprehensive record collection. Having begun his musical journey in the late ’60s, John is one of music’s top-selling solo artists—with more than 300 million albums sold worldwide and one of the biggest-selling singles of all time, “Candle in the Wind.” He is a multiple Grammy winner and the first recipient of the BRITs Icon Award. He has won a Tony, two Oscars, a Best British male artist BRIT Award, and an induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, alongside a Kennedy Center Honor for his lifetime contributions to American culture and excellence through the performing arts. Since 1992, the Elton John AIDS Foundation has raised more than $450 million for HIV prevention, treatment, and advocacy programs across the globe.
