Elvis Aaron Presley lives on in memory 37 years after death Print E-mail

“Until we meet again, may God bless you as He has blessed me.” ~ Elvis Presley

January 8, 1935 - August 16, 1977

Elvis Aaron Presley was born on January 8, 1935 in East Tupelo, Mississippi. His mother Gladys Love Smith worked as a sewing machine operator and his father Vernon had several low-paying jobs. Elvis had an identical twin brother that was stillborn and given the name Jesse Garon.

Presley first stepped inside a recording studio in July of 1953. He initially went to record some songs as a gift for his mother. While he didn’t impress anyone initially, almost one year later (June 1954) while playing around during a break from recording, Sam Phillips of Sun Records heard what Presley could really do and asked him to start over. Phillips began recording and released “That’s All Right (Mama)” on air July 8, 1954 through DJ Dewey Phillips. Radio listeners immediately began clogging the phone lines trying to find out who the new voice was. Presley’s career was launched. His contract with Sun Records was sold in 1955 to RCA Victor. In 1956 Elvis started appearing on television shows and within the year he was an international sensation.

Elvis is commonly called ‘The King of Rock and Roll.’ Presley received 14 Grammy nominations and won three. He regularly broke concert attendance records and record sales. In 1970 he was named ‘One of the Ten Outstanding Young Men of the Nation.’ He was presented with a lifetime achievement award from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences in 1971 at the age of 36. To date he has been inducted into four music halls of fame.

Elvis Presley died prematurely at age 42 in Memphis Tennessee, from poor health and the effects of a long-term dependency on drugs. He remains one of the best-selling and most influential artists in the history of popular music.

We are all of us stars, and we deserve to twinkle.” ~ Marilyn Monroe

Actress Marilyn Monroe was born as Norma Jeane Mortensen on June 1, 1926 in Los Angeles, California. During her all-too-brief life, Marilyn Monroe overcame a difficult childhood to become one of the world’s biggest and most enduring sex symbols. During her career, Monroe’s films grossed more than $200 million. Monroe passed away of a drug overdose on August 5, 1962, at only 36 years old.

Now more than a half century later, the world is still fascinated by her beauty and talent. Monroe has been imitated over the years by a number of celebrities, including Madonna, Lady Gaga and Gwen Stefani. Actress Michelle Williams portrayed Monroe in a 2011 film, My Week with Marilyn, about Monroe’s relationship with Sir Laurence Olivier in 1957’s The Prince and the Showgirl.
