Elton John's Son Zachary Steals Limelight At 2012 OscarsBash
Elton John was joined by a cast of A-list celebrities and high profile business representatives as he held his annual Oscars-viewing Aids fundraiser in Los Angeles last night (February 26, 2012) The Elton John Aids Foundation Oscar Viewing Party - to give it the correct title - was held at West Hollywood Park and the guest list included the blue-haired Katy Perry and the actress Fran Drescher. The star guest though, was undoubtedly Elton John and David Furnish's adopted son Zachary.
The Daily Mail has published photographs of Elton, David and Zachary together. Zachary, who celebrated his first birthday on Christmas Day 2011, was dressed in a suit that carried an emblem with his name on. He looked every bit the fashionista that you might expect of a boy raised in a household with one of the pop world's most iconic stars. Their adopted son was a focal point for Katy Perry who looked on, amused, as Zachary was entertained by Fran Drescher's Pomeranian puppy. Esther - the dog - was a source of great amusement to Zachary, who can be seen reaching out to stroke the brown fluffy pooch.
2012 marks the 20th anniversary of Elton John's annual Oscars Viewing Party. The multi-award winning songwriter continues to organise events such as this one to raise both money and awareness for the prevention and treatment of Aids. Rather than the red carpet of the Oscars, Elton's event has a white carpet for the stars to arrive on and he told reporters "We're getting bigger and bigger, which means we're raising more money. And the money gets to people who actually need it."
