In a very WEIRD WAY, I think I'm about the 'thank' the pandemic for this?? Ok NO, that doesn't sound right but hey...with ALL of the changes in the past year because of Covid....more and more folks have realized that there are actually many benefits to all these 'online' events....MORE PEOPLE CAN ATTEND thus helping to raise MORE MONEY for starters. Up until now, you had to be a celebrity OR someone who could drop a sweet chunk of $$ to even TRY to squeeze into Elton John's infamous Oscar parties. But now...WE ALL CAN GO!! Well, atleast the first 100,000 people that buy a ticket ASAP!! Elton's annual Oscars pre-party is going VIRAL this year, for the first time and open to ALL this year, because of the pandemic and we are EXCITED!!! This year, it's happening on April 25th, benefitting his Elton John AIDS Foundation...the online bash will be co-hosted by Neil Patrick HarrisAND will include a stripped-down performance byDua Lipa."Now more than ever, we need to ensure that one pandemic does not override another, and we cannot forget the 38 million people living with HIV globally who need our care, love and support, so we hope everyone joins us for this special one of a kind Oscar Pre-Party.”
