Elton John threw his annual AIDS research fundraiser last night in New York.
He had Fleetwood MAC's Stevie Nicks perform for the star studded crowd at his yearly benefit.
Brooke Shields, Lance Bass, Alan Cumming, Courtney Love and more all showed up to support the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
Elton made a short speech, asking for donations, saying:
"The stigma involved in people coming out and saying they're HIV positive is still an underground thing, it's still a shame-based thing. Until we can get everybody tested and people to come out and be role models to people who have HIV, then we're still battling against this disease."
We absolutely are still battling HIV and we're so lucky to have Elton on the forefront.
His event raised over $2,000,000!
Way to go, Elton!
