Anastacia has described Sir Elton as being like her ''fairy godmother'' when she was diagnosed with breast cancer and has praised him for the support he gave her.
Anastacia says was told she had the illness in 2003 and when she was at her lowest the older singer devoted a lot of his time and energy to help her cope with her ordeal.
She will always be grateful to Elton for his support at such a difficult time, and declared:
''He is just a shepherd. He's a shepherd with music, he's a shepherd with ailments, he's just such a giver and he's my little angel. He's my fairy godmother, you know.''
