Elvis is in the building
On January 8th, 1935 in Tupelo, MS, one of the greatest performers to ever walk the earth was born.
Elvis was a blues, soul, and rock singer who's amazing career was so long and distinguished, it had to separated into eras!
It started with his first groundbreaking recordings in the early 50's, leading to his initial appearances on television and the commercial success that came with that. As his fame growing, he was drafted into the army, where he continued to play and home his skills.
Upon his discharge from the army, Elvis promptly returned to Tennessee to resume recording. This included his foray into film as well. This would carry him to his iconic '68 comeback special, where fans argue he "found his way again". Elvis would continue to play sold-out shows to screaming fans until 1977, when is deteriorating Health due to drug abuse got the best of him. A long, distinguished, and tumultuous career, indeed.
He is rightly remembered as "The King", and his music and his heart live with us today
