The King lives on!

 

This is the story of Elvis Presley, who went from being a poor kid from Memphis to growing up and becoming the biggest musical act and a cultural icon that will never be forgotten. His start came when he was signed to Sun Records, where he was allowed to do so-called “African American” music and bring it out to a wider audience.

Right after he started to make his mark in music history, he became a brand and was able to act in movies and sell out shows worldwide. His dabbled in all kind of music, from rock and roll to gospel and everything he did became a hit seller. Even though he was highly successful, he had his own demons and family issues to deal with and his story was not all roses.
