Tonight’s mystery artist back in 1979 was the first pop or rock star allowed to perform in the Soviet Union. Know who had the landmark concert??

This interesting fact was one of many that I found on CNN’s Fast Facts about Elton John. Add to that he has won an Academy Award, a Tony Award, 3 Grammy Awards and has been knighted and that is just the tip of hit talented ice berg.

Here he is with tonight’s featured song.
