- About Elvis Aaron Presley and his journey.
- What made him remembered by people today also.
Elvis Aaron Presley known as Elvis was a well-known American actor and singer of his time who was born on January 8, 1935, in Tupelo, Mississippi, U.S. and relocated to Memphis, Tennessee, with his family when he was 13 years old.
His career began in the year 1954. He wanted to give us the sound of African American music and wanted to spread it to a wider audience. In 1955, drummer D. J. Fontana joined to complete the line-up of Presley’s classic quartet and RCA Victor acquired his contract in a deal arranged by Colonel Tom Parker, who would manage him for more than two decades.
Having sold over 500 million records, Presley is recognized as the best-selling solo music artist of all time by Guinness World Records. He became successful by giving pop, country, rhythm, and other types of hit songs.
I know he invented rock and roll, in a manner of speaking, but … that’s not why he’s worshiped as a god today. He’s worshiped as a god today because in addition to inventing rock and roll he was the greatest ballad singer this side of Frank Sinatra—because the spiritual translucence and reined-in gut sexuality of his slow weeper and torchy pop blues still activate the hormones and slavish devotion of millions of female human beings worldwide. These words were said by Robert Christgau.
He has a level of legacy that people used to respect him for his art of work. He married Priscilla Presley and they have one child known as Lisa Marie Presley. Elvis died on 16 August 1977 because of heart disease. But he still has a large number of fans and is still remembered by all.
