Raul Malo at Elton John Tribute in New York

Raul Malo is set to sing “Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word” at a gala tribute to the music of Elton John and Bernie Taupin on Wednesday night (Oct. 10) at New York’s Carnegie Hall. Malo is the only Nashville artist appearing at the event benefiting music education programs for underprivileged young people. Others paying tribute to the songwriting team include Aimee Mann, Roger McGuinn and Roy Ayers. The same night, Malo will also appear with Vince Gill, Patty Griffin, Jewel and Trisha Yearwood at the Nokia Theatre in Times Square for the All for the Hall fundraiser for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Malo, lead singer for the Mavericks, will return to Nashville for a sold-out concert at the Belcourt Theatre on Thursday night (Oct. 11).
