Happy Birthday Elvis!
Elvis Aaron Presley was born January 8, 1935, in Tupelo, Mississippi. He moved to Memphis when he was 13 and began singing for Sun Records when he was 19. Over his career he made music and movies for the masses like no other artist from the era. He is regarded as one of the 20th centuries most popular pop culture icons. The music business took its toll on Presley and on August 16, 1977, Presley died at his Memphis home, Graceland, at the age of 42.
