Imagine if Elton played your wedding!?

Everyone dreams of having a beutiful wedding. People go all out and will spend thousands of dollars to ensure that the memory they create that night, is not only one that will resonate with them forever, but will also resonate with everyone who attends as well.

Recently, Elton John performed a Russian wedding for the granddaughter of Russian billionaire Valery Kogan. Reportedly, Kogan paid Elton (and Mariah Carey who also performed at the wedding) 4.2 billion dollars to perform! Talk about a pay-day!

Elton performed a full set at the event, and brought the house down. There are many clips online of this performance, but our favorite is the clip of him performing “Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word.” Elton sounds perfect, and still sounds like he did back in the 1970s! It’s pretty phenomenal!

Fun Fact: Bernie Taupin explained on his website: “Interesting thing about ‘Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word’ is that it’s one of the rare occasions when Elton played me a melody line that inspired a lyric, as opposed to our routine of the lyrics always coming first. He was messing around on the piano one day and was playing something and asked me what did I think. It was actually pretty immediate, the title and the first couple of lines came into my head in a way that I guess I felt they were already there and just needed a little prompting.”

Check out the amazing performance down below, and let us know what you think!
