Elton John has tapped Sheryl Crow to perform at the annual gala for the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
The event is set for November 5th at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York. Among the people being honored arePatricia Hearst. That name may ring a bell for people of a certain age -- she was kidnapped by the radical Symbionese Liberation Army in 1974 and later became part of their terrorist activities. She was sentenced to seven years in jail for her crimes, but her sentence was commuted by President Jimmy Carter in 1979. She's used the Heart family money since then to focus on children suffering from AIDS.
