Elton plans to duet with recent Grammy-winning pop star
John Mayer at his upcoming Oscar-watching bash.
The annual party last year raised nearly $550,000 for the Elton John AIDS Foundation, which has generated more than $45 million for AIDS prevention programs, Elton said in an interview Wednesday.
This year’s event is set to take place at the Marquee club in West
Hollywood, where about 200 guests will gather for a five-course dinner during the March 23 Oscar telecast.
Guests who correctly pick Oscar-winners throughout the evening can win luxury gifts such as his-and-her Chopard diamond watches, Jimmy Choo shoes, and a MAC Viva Glam swarovski crystal-encrusted lipstick.
John Mayer, defeated Elton at the Grammys last month in the category for best male pop vocalist and is best known for his romantic ballad Your Body Is a Wonderland.
“I’ll be singing with him as well. We’ll either do Your Body Is a Wonderland … and we’ll probably do one of my songs together, which we haven’t worked out yet,” Elton said.
