Written by Chief Editor.

When it comes to the thousand most influential people in London, Elton and his partner make the grade.

Sir Elton is on the Evening Standard's Power 1000 list, along with David Furnish.

The paper says Elton is a ''musician and singer who puts the fun into philanthropy by throwing glamorous fund-raisers for good causes, notably combating AIDS.''

The publication adds:

''His Oscars night party is a fixture of the Hollywood calendar and he and his civil partner, film producer David Furnish, are doting parents to two boys.''

What's more, in a listing of the ten most influential couples, Elton and David are ranked in 5th place.
