Artist Spotlight: Elvis Presley

August 9, 2018 0 By Bryan Swann

My mom built my appreciation and love of this artist, so in honor of her birthday here is our Artist Spotlight on Elvis Presley.

Elvis Presley was an American singer and actor that transcended the medium to become a cultural icon. Elvis had a tremendous career as the King of Rock and Roll and left a deep impact on the hearts of millions around the world. The King passed away Aug. 16, 1977 (or did he?) in his home in Memphis, TN. Join us as we celebrate some of our favorite things Elvis gave us in this Artist Spotlight. As always hit us on social media (Facebook/Twitter) or in the comments below with some of your favorites!
