Clinton honoured for work on AIDS

Sir Elton John has honoured Hillary Clinton for her work to help those affected by HIV/AIDS, at an annual event for his foundation.

She was excited as she accepted the first founders award from the Elton John AIDS Foundation last night in New York City.

The former secretary of state told the crowd at Cipriani's restaurant that "we still have so far to go" when it comes to helping those affected by HIV/AIDS.

Billy Joel, Alec Baldwin and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo also attended the black tie event. Recent Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Heart performed a dozen songs.

Sir Elton's foundation is celebrating its 20th year. The singer says he will continue to be "stubborn" when it comes to finding ways to help those affected by AIDS.
