Let us pray for Sir Elton John

Elton John’s retirement has had a challenging start. Last night, Sir Elton John was taken to the hospital after tripping and injuring himself at his home in the South of France.

According to the BBC, Elton was taken to a nearby hospital “as a precautionary measure.” His spokesman confirmed, “Following examinations, he was promptly released this morning and is now back at home and in good health.”

Elton lives in the South of France with his husband, David Furnish, and their two children. The family has been residing there since Elton announced his retirement from live performances in July.

At 76 years old, Elton may have retired from live performances, but he continues to write music. While it’s unclear if he has any upcoming projects, this won’t be the last we hear from him.
