Elvis Presley, 1935-1977, the King of Rock and Roll, was born in Tupelo, Mississippi, on January 8, 1935. His family was extremely poor. During his childhood, he sang in his church with his parents. He also listened carefully to the musical genres that had influence on his own music, including country, rhythm and blues, and religious music, and in 1953 he made his first recording, “My Happiness.”
Presley made this recording at the Memphis Recording Service. As the story goes, he paid four dollars to make the recording for his mother. A woman who worked in the recording studio had another job with Sun Records, and she made a second recording of all of Elvis’s music because she believed that Sun Records would be interested in publishing his music.
The owner of Sun Records, Sam Phillips, was looking for a white American who could sing rhythm and blues, a black musical genre. Soon he published “That’s all right.”
The recording sold well in Memphis. Soon Presley’s music aroused the attention of Colonel Tom Parker. Elvis signed an agreement with Parker that allowed him to manage his musical career. Soon Elvis made a recording of “Heartbreak Hotel,” which made him very famous in the entire United States.
Already in the middle part of the decade between 1950 and 1960 Elvis Presley was famous throughout the entire world as a singer with some very sexy moves while he sang his music. Many adults in that puritanical era believed that he and his music were a bad influence on American youth, but young women loved him, and great crowds came to his concerts to hear his music.
In 1956 he made the film “Love Me Tender,” and Elvis became the highest paid actor in Hollywood during that era. Eventually he made thirty-one films. In 1958, immediately after the production of the film “King Creole,” Elvis was drafted into the American army because of the military conscription of that period.
During his years in the American army, Elvis lived very comfortably in Germany and had access to many beautiful women. At that time he met Priscilla Beaulieu, the daughter of an army officer. She was fourteen years old. Later on, after his years of service in the army, Priscilla came to live with him in Memphis, Tennessee. They got married in 1967, when she was twenty-one years old. He was thirty-two. Nine months later, they had a daughter, Lisa Marie Presley.
During the years that Elvis served in the American army, Colonel Parker made sure that his music continued to be played on the radios of the country, and Elvis was as popular after his years of service as he was before joining the U.S. army. Eventually, Elvis earned three Grammies, the first for “How Great Thou Art,” an album of religious music.

During his concerts in Las Vegas and in other parts of the country, Elvis did not let Priscilla go with him. He also did not want her to have visitors while he traveled, and she remained a prisoner in Graceland, his estate in Memphis. Priscilla finally left him in 1972 for another man. After the end of his marriage, Presley started to suffer from serious clinical depression.
