Elton John: Billboard's #1 Adult Contemporary Artist
John, who has about 30 albums to his credit, has had 16 number one records to date in adult contemporary music. This is a record.
Working in the music industry since 1967, Elton started his career when he was only 15 years old playing piano in the local tavern on the weekends. However, he actually has been playing since the tender age of 3.
John's sales have totaled over 250 million records. He has earned several Grammy Awards, as well as other similar accomplishments. This classifies him as one of the most successful musical artists ever.
Proactive in many charitable events, he has received a knighthood from Queen Elizabeth II herself for his selflessness and hospitality towards others. His time and generosity have helped others not as fortunate live better lives.
