Singer Elton John turns author

Los Angeles, Jan 11 Singer Elton John is writing his first book “Love Is the Cure: Ending the Global Aids Epidemic,” a collection of memories and meditations on the fight against Aids.

The book is due for July release and will be accompanied by an audiobook recorded by the singer himself.

“Why are we not doing more? This is a question I have thought deeply about, and wish to answer – and to help change – by writing this book… This is a disease that must be cured not by a miraculous vaccine, but by changing hearts and minds,” the guardian.co.uk quoted the 64-year-old as saying.

John will also share his experience of losing friends -including Freddie Mercury, who died of an Aids-related illness in 1991 and the teenage activist Ryan White- in the book.

Proceeds from the sale of the book will go to the Elton John’s AIDS Foundation.
