As the whole rock & roll family is devastated after hearing the devastating death of Little Richard, most of the celebrities took to social media to share their untold memories with the legendary late star.

Elton John posted a recent photo on his verified account today and revealed that Little Richard was his biggest influence ever. He also revealed how he was nervous as hell while he was listening to Little Richard’ ‘The Power.’

That golden-worth post of Elton got 100K likes in a really short time.

Here is the emotional letter of Elton John to Little Richard:

“Without a doubt – musically, vocally, and visually – he was my biggest influence. Seeing him live in my teens was the most exciting event in my life at that point. Goosebumps, electricity, and joy came from every pore. His records still sound fresh and the opening few seconds of “Tutti Frutti” are the most explosive in music history.

I was lucky enough to work with him for my “Duets” album in 1993. He was shy and funny and I was SO nervous. The track we recorded “The Power” is a favourite in my catalogue. We also played live at the Beverly Hilton and I felt like I’d died and gone to heaven.

He influenced so many and is irreplaceable. A true legend, icon and a force of nature. #RIP Little Richard
Love, Elton.”
