    An Elton John concert at Radio City Music Hall last night helped raise $2.5 million for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign. According to campaign aides and Billboard.com, fans paid anywhere from $125 to $2,300 for tickets.

    "I've always been a Hillary supporter," John said at the show. "There is no one more qualified to lead America.

    He added, "I'm amazed by the misogynistic attitudes of some of the people in this country. And I say to hell with them … I love you Hillary, I'll be there for you."

    Senator Clinton came onstage before John's set along with former President Bill Clinton and their daughter, Chelsea.

    "What I want you to know is I'm still standing, and I believe this country is worth fighting for," she said, alluding to one of John's hits. "So we're taking our campaign to Pennsylvania and all the states that haven't voted."

    Pennsylvania casts their primary ballots on April 22.
