Rocker Adam Lambert and Glee star Jane Lynch were among the hundreds in attendance at Sir Elton John's concert to support gay marriage.

The Rocket Man singer and new dad performed a concert on Wednesday in support of the American Foundation for Equal Rights (AFER), a group formed specifically to support a challenge to California's gay marriage ban, Proposition 8, at the Beverly Hills estate of Ron Burke. The 90-minute concert reportedly helped raise more than $3 million for the group.

The concert marks a reversal on the issue for Sir Elton, who previously endorsed civil unions for gay and lesbian couples.

“This is a civil rights issue,” Lambert told the AP at the concert. “This is beyond morality and this and that. You know our country makes many of its other decisions based on these ideals, and then all of the sudden when it comes to the gay and lesbian community we're reverting back into, 'Well religion and sanctity.' You know what? Separation of church and state – gotta keep that going.”

Lynch, who married Dr. Lara Embry in Massachusetts, said the couple would love to be married in California. Currently, the state recognizes gay and lesbian couples with domestic partnerships.

“We would love to be married here in California,” Lynch said. “We also would love for it to be national.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)
