Did You Know.... Elvis was gave frequent generous donations to the St. Jude Children's Hospital? That The King took rime every year to personally visit the kids in the hospital. And Elvis gave private affair performances to raise money for St. Jude as well as hospitals. Here was the Elvis too few people knew, aside being the King Of Rock & Roll and the true King Of Pop.

Elvis Aron Presley, in the humblest of circumstances, was born to Vernon and Gladys Presley in a two-room house in Tupelo, Mississippi on January 8, 1935. His twin brother, Jessie Garon, was stillborn, leaving Elvis to grow up as an only child. He and his parents moved to Memphis, Tennessee in 1948, and Elvis graduated from Humes High School there in 1953.

Elvis' musical influences were the pop and country music of the time, the gospel music he heard in church and at the all-night gospel sings he frequently attended, and the black R&B he absorbed on historic Beale Street as a Memphis teenager. In 1954, he began his singing career with the legendary Sun Records label in Memphis. In late 1955, his recording contract was sold to RCA Victor. By 1956, he was an international sensation. With a sound and style that uniquely combined his diverse musical influences and blurred and challenged the social and racial barriers of the time, he ushered in a whole new era of American music and popular culture.

He starred in 33 successful films, made history with his television appearances and specials, and knew great acclaim through his many, often record-breaking, live concert performances on tour and in Las Vegas. Globally, he has sold over one billion records, more than any other artist. His American sales have earned him gold, platinum or multi-platinum awards for 150 different albums and singles, far more than any other artist. Among his many awards and accolades were 14 Grammy nominations (3 wins) from the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences, the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, which he received at age 36, and his being named One of the Ten Outstanding Young Men of the Nation for 1970 by the United States Jaycees. Without any of the special privileges his celebrity status might have afforded him, he honorably served his country in the U.S. Army. His talent, good looks, sensuality, charisma, and good humor endeared him to millions, as did the humility and human kindness he demonstrated throughout his life. Known the world over by his first name, he is regarded as one of the most important figures of twentieth century popular culture. Elvis died at his Memphis home, Graceland, on August 16, 1977. Elvis' collector photos and more continued...

Out of all the volumes of songs he recorded, Elvis stated in a trade newspaper interview that his favorite was It's Now Or Never, a rock-a-beguine using the melody of an Italian Standard O Solo Mio.
It was, believe it or not, one of only two Elvis songs, right or wrong, to show up on Billboard's all time global top ten. It was bumped from the #1 spot by The Beatles' "Hey, Jude." Don't ask us why.

One fantastic story about the real Elvis Presley came along the summer of 1958, when The King Of Rock & Roll had several hits in the top 20. Elvis and his entourage were looking over luxury cars at a Los Angeles Cadillac dealership. The King noticed an elderly lady telling a car salesman she could not afford whatever payments were asked for a certain used model Lincoln town car. In a flash, Elvis bought the speechless senior a brand new Cadillac cash.

In New York, the Broadway Musical, "Million Dollar Quartet" showcases a Sun Records tribute to Elvis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins & Jerry Lee Lewis. The Musical won a Globe award and plays to SRO crowds nightly.

Like Sinatra before him, Elvis Presley, still the one and only King of Rock & Roll from the sixties to the present, will always be renowned and remembered as the King of Rock & Roll, the other "King of..." crowns just never made an equal or compared to the fan loyalty and admiration of the true King.

As Ed Sullivan once said on live network television about Elvis, "I want you all to know this is a fine, fine boy." Ed's competitor Steve Allen, stated (conceded), "I may not like Rock & Roll, but Elvis Presley's audience grabbing performance and personna is hard to beat." What say we at Oldies Television. "Elvis Presley is the true King of Rock & Roll now and forever."
