On Monday, Elton shared a warm birthday greeting to Tony Bennett via social media. Anchored on his piano bench as usual (in front of green screen, it looks like?), Sir Elton shared the sort of sentiment we all need these days, the COVID-19 pandemic still maintaining its hold over our idea of “normal.”

“Hi Tony,” Elton’s message begins. “Happy 94th birthday. You get younger every year! And I know your theme this year is ‘The Best is Yet to Come,’ I think that’s a pretty good theme to have. Because at the moment, we’re going through some hard time. But you and I have probably been through worse times than what we’re going through. You and I are always optimists, artists usually are. I’m hoping that next year, things will completely turn around, and people like you and I can go back to work and entertain people, and spread joy and love throughout the world — which it desperately needs at this moment. 

Meanwhile, I send you all my love, and thank you for spreading so much joy throughout my life. You are an amazing man, an amazing artist, and someone who we should all look up to.

God bless you, have the best day.”
