Presley is one of the most celebrated and influential musicians of the 20th century.
(January 8, 1935 – August 16, 1977) was an American singer, musician, and actor.
In his free time, he would head down to Beale Street, the heart of Memphis's thriving blues scene, and gaze longingly at the wild, flashy clothes in the windows of Lansky Brothers. Overcoming his reticence about performing outside the Lauderdale Courts, he competed in Humes's Annual "Minstrel" show in April 1953.
By then, the family was living in a largely African-American neighborhood.
Presley was a devotee of Mississippi Slim's show on the Tupelo radio station WELO.
Commercially successful in many genres, including pop, blues and gospel, he is one of the best-selling artists in the history of recorded music, with estimated record sales of around 600 million units worldwide.
Elvis Presley was born on January 8, 1935 in Tupelo, Mississippi, to Gladys Love Presley (née Smith; 1912–1958) in the two-room shotgun house built by his father, Vernon Elvis Presley (1916–1979), in preparation for the birth.
Jesse Garon Presley, his identical twin brother, was delivered 35 minutes before him, stillborn.
