Tiny Dancer - A Song For Lily-Mae
By the Editor@EltonJohn.com
A beautiful version of Elton and Bernie’s song Tiny Dancer has been recorded in Ireland as a way to raise money for the care of Lily-Mae Morrison, a four year-old Irish girl who has neuroblastoma, a rare and extremely aggressive childhood cancer of the nervous system.
Lily-Mae, from Galway, is the daughter of professional ballet dancers, Judith Sibley and Leighton Morrison. A group of over 300 Irish musicians has recorded Tiny Dancer in an attempt to raise money for her care, to raise awareness of neuroblastoma, and maybe even to reach the number one spot in the Christmas charts in Ireland and elsewhere.
You can view a video of the song here on YouTube.
Tiny Dancer by A Song For Lily-Mae is released from iTunes on November 23. We encourage Elton’s fans to like the video, and we especially encourage you to visit iTunes on Friday and buy the song! You can visit the A Song For Lily-Mae Facebook page here.
Tiny Dancer was originally released on Elton’s 1971 album, Madman Across The Water. It has always been a much-loved Elton John song, and was memorably featured by Cameron Crowe in his 2000 feature film Almost Famous, which brought the song to the attention of a whole new audience. Tiny Dancer is a mainstay of Elton’s set list, and he has been performing it at every show during his current tour of Australia.
