Elton John has personally selected triple Grammy nominee Raphael Saadiq to perform at Sir Elton’s 17th Annual AIDS Foundation Academy Awards viewing party in West Hollywood Feb. 22.
“I’m absolutely thrilled and excited that he will be performing at our Oscar party,” says John. “I can’t wait to hear the songs live.”
The bash at the Pacific Design Center – sponsored by Chopard, Vh1, and Jo and Raffy Manoukian – will feature cocktails and a five-course dinner and will raise funds to support HIV/AIDS prevention and service programs in 55 countries.
