Sir Elton John
Congratulating Oprah on 25 "amazing and incredible" years, music legend Sir Elton John says Oprah's passion not only changed television, it has changed lives. "She became someone that people could identify with, who took up their causes, who taught people about good things in life, better choices, better principles, championed the underdog, got people to read again," he says. "She turned the normal talk show into something of an event. You had to watch Oprah every day because you didn't know what was going to come at you."
