Rufus Wainwright has been doing some shows lately at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden.

On July 19, his sister, Martha, joined him. Their material included a lively rendition of Elton and Kiki Dee‘s duet, Don’t Go Breaking My Heart. The two also performed songs by Edith Piaf, Leonard Cohen and their late mother, Kate McGarrigle, as well as original work.

This isn’t the first time Rufus has covered Don’t Go Breaking My Heart.

He and Kylie Minogue sang it at a Long Island show last summer, to benefit the Windmill Centre, supporting emerging artists.
