Hilary Roberts says Sir Elton is a “wonderful example” of overcoming pain and addiction to make a difference.
The Good Man hitmaker pointed to his biopic ‘Rocketman’ – which starred Taron Egerton as Elton himself – as evidence of him being open about his past help those in need.
She told BANG Showbiz: “I think about Elton John, and about the movie ‘Rocketman’ and how he released that. It puts it all out there.
“He unapologetically shared his life, and look at him today! He’s an advocate for sobriety. He found the love of his life and has a family now. He helps many, many people inflicted with HIV and AIDS.
“He uses his platform, his gifts, to give all he can to help humanity. And how beautiful is that? That’s one of your home grown that has this amazing life, and he’s a wonderful example of walking out of pain, and going through the other side.”
Roberts has been sober for over two decades now.
