Elton John lauds NY governor for gay marriage law
At benefit, Elton John praises NY governor for helping state legalize gay marriage
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' Elton John says politics have divided the United States, but he singled out one politician during his foundation's annual benefit as an example for others to follow.

The British singer praised New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo at Wednesday night's 10th annual Enduring Vision gala for the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

John thanked Cuomo for "taking a stand in New York and making the dream of marriage equality a reality in the state." The governor was seated in the audience.

In July, New York became the sixth U.S. state to recognize same-sex nuptials.

The benefit raised $2 million for John's foundation.

Alec Baldwin, Jon Bon Jovi and Sarah Ferguson were among the celebrities in attendance.
