Will Elton Play at the 2012 London Olympics?
After witnessing one of the most spectacular Olympic Opening Ceremonies ever staged, I had an idea.
The Olympic Games will be traveling to London, England in 2012, and it makes sense that a rich part of British history is their music.
Why not get the biggest names in not only British musical history, but global music, to participate in a music medley which illustrates the rich tapestry of English born artists?
Chinese pianist Lang Lang performed amongst a group of performers who created a human scale model of the Beijing Olympic stadium, whilst images were displayed on a giant robotic LED screen situated beneath the piano.
Wouldn't it be impressive to see what Sir Elton John, a piano, and London's world renowned choreographers and stage designers could create?
Maybe he could float down on a stage supported by guide cables whilst performing 'Your Song' on a beautiful white grand piano?
I would love to hear your suggestions...
