The Story Behind “That’s What Friends Are For”
Elton joined Dionne Warwick, Stevie Wonder and Gladys Knight on this AIDS benefit single. And Elton, who was third in line for the part behind George Michael and Rod Stewart, finally did it. The song was written by Burt Bacharach and his songwriter and wife Carole Bayer Sager, for the film “Night Shift” and sung by Rod Stewart.
