Tammy Faye Said to be Subject of Elton's Latest Musical

Written by Chief Editor.

The Daily Mail has reported that Elton and Jake Shears have been collaborating on a musical about Tammy Faye Bakker

A full workshop is to be staged later in the year, and they’re working towards a production opening in London in the second part of 2020.

At one time, Tammy and her husband Jim Bakker were among the most famous televangelists in America, living a life of luxury--before their empire came crashing down amid sex and financial scandals.

The TV personality, who later married Roe Messner, died in 2007 at the age of 65.
