(AP) Elton John has honored Hillary Rodham Clinton for her work to help those affected by HIV/AIDS at an annual event for his foundation.
Clinton was excited as she accepted the first founders award from the Elton John AIDS Foundation Tuesday night in New York City. The former secretary of state told the crowd at Cipriani's restaurant that "we still have so far to go" when it comes to helping those affected by HIV/AIDS.
Billy Joel, Alec Baldwin and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo also attended the black tie event. Recent Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Heart performed a dozen songs.
John's foundation is celebrating its 20th year. The pop icon says he will continue to be "stubborn" when it comes to finding ways to help those affected by AIDS.
