President Biden awarded the National Humanities Medal to Elton John “for moving our souls with his powerful voice...found purpose to challenge convention, shatter stigma, and advance the simple truth: that everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.” The musician said, “I just said to the first lady that I’m never flabbergasted, but I’m flabbergasted, and humbled, and honored by this incredible award,” and that “America’s kindness to me as a musician is second to none, but in the war against AIDS and HIV, it’s even bigger and I can’t thank you enough.” close
