Happy birthday, Elvis Presley! This beautiful man, born in a tiny home in Tupelo, Mississippi on January 8, 1935, paved the way for the rock ‘n roll music we love today. “Thank you very much,” Elvis, for sharing your talents with us. At 82 in Heaven, you live in our hearts forever! I’m grateful that you inspired me to write Waking Up in Graceland and meet so many wonderful people in the Elvis world.
