Elton John Is Getting Married! Now Who Should He Hire as His Wedding Singer?
The bespectacled singer-songwriter is planning to wed his longtime love David Furnish in May.
It is now legal for same-sex couples to get married in the United Kingdom, and there's at least one superstar planning to take advantage of the change in legislation: Performer Elton John.
In an interview with Today, John revealed that he is planning a "low-key" wedding with his longtime love David Furnish, a Canadian filmmaker with whom he has two sons.
"For this legislation to come through is joyous and we should celebrate it," John insisted. "We shouldn't just say, 'Oh, well, we have a civil partnership, we're not going to bother to get married'. We will get married."
Furnish told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that he and his future husband want to keep the ceremony relatively quiet, with just their sons and a couple of witnesses sometime in May.
But let's be real: Elton John knows how to throw a party, and we're guessing he'll want to celebrate the joyous occasion with a blowout somewhere down the line.
