Watch a Heart-Warming Interview with Elton
A boy from The Bridge School interviews Elton John & gives him a birthday present!
The Bridge school is a non-profit school set up by Neil Young because Neil's son has cerebral palsy. the children of the Bridge School have cerebral palsy and other conditions affecting speech and mobility, but are all of ordinary, and even above average, intelligence. every year an annual all star Bridge School Benefit concert is organized by Young where many musicians donate their time to play music, do interviews with the kids, and raise money to help the school and help buy technology to help children communicate. musicians have included Buffalo Springfield, Paul McCartney, The Who, Elton John, Jackson Browne, Smashing Pumpkins, No Doubt, James Taylor, Paul Simon, Cat Power (& many other talented groups and people!) www.bridgeschool.org
the school focuses on using special new technology to help them communicate and help the world better understand and accept them for who they are.
