Real Name:
Elvis Aron Presley
Profile:
American singer.
Born: 8 January 1935 in East Tupelo, Mississippi, USA.
Died: 16 August 1977 in Memphis, Tennessee, USA (aged 42).

Presley is one of the most celebrated and influential musicians of the 20th century. Commercially successful in many genres, including rock 'n' roll, pop and gospel, he is the best-selling solo artist in the history of recorded music with estimated record sales of more than a billion units worldwide. He won three Grammys, also receiving the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award at age 36, and has been inducted into a.o. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Country Music Hall of Fame, Rockabilly Hall of Fame and Gospel Hall of Fame.
He is often referred to as "the King of Rock and Roll", or simply, "the King".

His early recordings for Sun Records in 1954/55 are widely considered as a founding moment for rockabilly music. RCA Victor acquired his contract in 1955, and from 1956 on Elvis Presley became the most succesful artist in rock 'n' roll music.
Besides his musical career, he appeared in musical movies from 1956 on. In the early 1960s his music style changed to a more mainstream pop sound until a well-publicized 1968 rock 'n' roll come-back. From 1969 on he performed live in Las Vegas and toured across the USA. The later part of his career tended towards pop and country ballads.
Elvis Presley is the object of one of the most enduring and widespread fandoms in popular culture.

His parents were Gladys Presley (mother) and Vernon Presley (father).
Father of Lisa Marie Presley, daughter from his marriage to Priscilla Presley (1967 to 1973).
