Is the movie "Rocketman" about Elton John’s life?

More articles may be found on INSIDER's homepage. "Rocketman" is the most recent biopic to reach theaters, and it follows the life of music great Elton John (played by Taron Egerton), from a child prodigy to a renowned musician. The film, which Egerton characterizes as a "musical dream," delves into both John's public and private lives.

Elton John has been praised for his portrayal in the film, but there are also some aspects that have been criticized. For example, some people claim that the movie focuses too much on his sexual affairs instead of his music career. However, "Rocketman" does follow John's journey from playing small clubs to opening for U2 at their biggest stadium tour.

In addition to being an award-winning singer, songwriter, and pianist, Elton John is also known for his advocacy work with LGBT+ issues. He has been married three times and has two children together with his third wife. "Rocketman" shows us how one man's pain can bring happiness to others.

Does Taron Egerton really sing?

However, unlike Rami Malek, who lip-synched most of Queen's songs with the assistance of a Freddie Mercury sound-alike, Taron Egerton, who won Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy at the 2020 Golden Globes for playing Elton John in Rocketman, is truly performing all of Elton's songs. He has confirmed this himself on Twitter.

Egerton has been singing since he was a child - his father was an opera singer - and after becoming involved in musicals as a teenager, he decided to give it up to pursue other career paths before returning to music once again. He says that he hopes to use his fame to help other young people who might be afraid to follow their dreams because of the risk of failure.

He also wants to encourage musicians who weren't born into wealthy families to keep pursuing their dreams. Many famous musicians had to work hard to earn a living while studying music in their free time, some even taking jobs in restaurants or stores to save enough money to buy instruments. Some even stole items from other musicians' bags to play on stage.

Elton John has said about Taron: "I'm so excited that Taron will be bringing my songs to life on screen. I can't wait for everyone to see what we've done with these songs."

Taron Egerton Instagrammed a video on Wednesday morning showing him singing onstage with Elton John during the musician's recent concert in London.
