Charlie Puth has a lot in common with Elton John, including the way that whenever either man sits at the piano magical things happen. Neither musician is afraid to get emotional either, or use their special gifts to comfort those in mourning and honor those we’ve lost. Puth went on the Today show and performed his and Wiz Khalifa’s superhit, “See You Again“, dedicating it to the victims of the Orlando massacre.
“See You Again” was originally written to honor and say goodbye to late actor Paul Walker. It was featured in the film Furious 7. Puth refashioned it, dedicating it to the Orlando victims and mourners just the way Elton John took his song “Candle in the Wind” — originally written about the tragic early death of Marilyn Monroe — and refashioned it 24 years later to address the tragic early death of Princess Diana. Tears follow both Puth’s and John’s renditions, but tears that sometimes help.
