happy birthday elvisi wanted to pay tribute to Elvis Aaron Presley who was born on January 8th 1935, he would have been celebrating his 76th birthday tomorrow had he still been alive today
elvis had a sound and style that was unique, his musical influences were pop and country music of the time, the gospel music he sang in church and the black R&B he heard on the street as a teenager
it was not just his music people love about him though although admittedly he had talent but he was good looking, had a great sense of humour was a kind man which was demonstrated throughout his life
he defiantly was one of a kind
He starred in 33 successful films, made television appearances, live concert performances. Globally, he has sold over one billion records, more than any other artist. His American sales earned him gold, platinum, multi-platinum awards. Among his many awards were 14 Grammy nominations(3 wins) one of which was 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.he also served his country in the U.S. Army.
