Star Spangled Banner – More Than Just Words

Oh, say can you see by the dawn’s early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

Elton shared his powerful story about the gift that altered his life with the marketing team for John Lewis & Partners, a popular department store in the United Kingdom.

The video team started Elton’s story by showing his life in present-day and working backward.
