In the 1995 Elton John song Made in England (on the album of the same name), the lyrics go:


I had Little Richard and that grand piano
Oh that sweet Georgia Peach and the boy from Tupelo

Right, so Little Richard is obvious, and the boy from Tupelo must be Elvis - so who is that Sweet Georgia Peach?

Any ideas, folks?

It's Little Richard (again).

Oh, and it's "black piano" I think.
