Happy Birthday, Elvis!

elvisBorn on January 8, 1935 in Tupelo, Mississippi, Elvis Aron Presley rose to become one of rock's most enduring legends.

Although Elvis tragically left us way back in 1977, he still remains in the hearts and minds of millions of fans around the world. Had he lived, this year would have marked the 80th birthday of the King of Rock 'n Roll.

The 80th anniversary of Elvis' birth was celebrated at his famous home in Graceland with week-long festivities -- kicking off from January 7 - January 10, 2015 -- with special Graceland tours, Elvis fan club get-togethers, guest performances, and other rockin' musical tributes in honor of The King.

His amazingly versatile voice won him countless admirers, and his generous warm nature along with his handsome good looks has ensured his renditions of many of the most loved songs ever written will continue to attract discerning listeners.

Unique in many ways, Elvis lived an enigmatic life which even to this day attracts the efforts of countless biographers, from close friend's reminiscences, to academic investigations.

A legend in his own lifetime, Elvis has also become the icon of an era. His voice, at it's very best, has an uncanny addictive nature. No wonder millions of people once ensnared, rarely escape it's seductive tones - even if they wanted to.
