A private tribute was held for the late Elizabeth Taylor on October 16 at the Steven J. Ross Theatre in Burbank, California with actor Colin Farrell serving as the host.
People reports that a private tribute to screen legend Elizabeth Taylor was held on October 16 with the children of Taylor on hand along with such celebrities as Elton John, Sharon Stone, and Larry King. As reported, Elizabeth Taylor’s grandson, Rhys Tivey, performed “Amazing Grace” on trumpet.
As People reveals, Elton John spoke to the crowd about the friendship he shared with Elizabeth Taylor and how the screen actress was one of a kind. “To say that the world got smaller, emptier, darker and lonelier when we lost Elizabeth is an understatement,” said John. “She was a true rock, a pioneer, a pathfinder, a trailblazer and a star who will always burn bright and always had time to laugh at herself.”
Elizabeth Taylor died of heart failure on March 23 at the age of 79.
