The “Sacrifice” singer showed his concern for the star at an event by dedicating a track to her during his performance, reports nypost.com.

”She’s had a hell of a year. Vanessa, this is to you with love from me and all the artists on the stage,” Sir Elton told the crowd before launching into a rendition of “I guess that’s why they call it the blues”.

The 73-year-old actress faced a series of personal tragedies in recent months as her daughter Natasha Richardson died last year following a skiing accident, her brother Corin passed away in April and her sister Lynn lost her battle with breast cancer earlier this month.
