Good morning, I'm Michel Martin. Another honor for Elton John as he winds down his remarkable career - last night, the singer's Disney Plus special, "Elton John Live: Farewell From Dodger Stadium," won the prime-time Emmy award for outstanding variety special. This makes him only the 19th person ever to become an EGOT. That means a winner of an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Award. He follows in the footsteps of singer John Legend and the actresses Rita Moreno and Viola Davis. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
