If you are a true Elvis fan, you must watch this incredible video of his performance
The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll is still loved and adored by his fans from all over the globe. Fascinating videos of his performances validate the amazing talent Elvis had, and the one we want to share with you today is absolutely awesome.
Blue Christmas was one of Elvis' favorite songs. In fact, this video is very special, as Martina McBride, a well-known country singer, joins Elvis to perform the famous song with him. But Martina was only 2 years old in 1968 when Elvis' performance was filmed, and the duet was produced electronically in 2008. We think the result is beautiful and authentic. What is your opinion? How did this song make you feel?
Here are 7 fascinating facts about the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll and his prominent life:
#1 Besides "Blue Christmas", Elvis had 14 songs with the word "Blue" in the title
"Blue Suede Shoes", "Blue Moon of Kentucky", "Indescribably Blue"... Can you name more?
#2 His first ever recording was a gift for his mother
"My Happiness" and "That’s When Your Heartaches Begin" became a belated birthday gift for Elvis' mother Gladys. In 1953, he paid only $4 to record these songs. In 2015, the acetate disc was sold at auction for $300,000!
#3 Elvis got his first guitar at the age of 11
That's how music became a part of his life. But can you believe that Elvis was upset with this birthday gift? He had been hoping for a bike!
#4 Elvis liked peculiar food combinations
His favorite sandwich was peanut butter, honey, banana, and... bacon! Elvis also hated fish.
#5 Elvis and Johnny Cash impersonated each other sometimes
Some sources say they were good friends and deeply admired each other. But, according to others, they were rivals... What do you know about that?
#6 Elvis was a black belt in karate!
And his karate name was "Tiger". Impressive!
#7 During a 1969 performance Elvis laughed so hard he couldn't finish the song!
He sang “Do you gaze at your bald head and wish you had hair?” instead of “Do you gaze at your doorstep and picture me there?”. Elvis often occasionally changed the lyrics of his songs, and that was just another impromptu, he thought. But what happened next will put a big smile on your face! Suddenly a man from the audience removed his wig and began swaying to the music. Elvis struggled to hold back his laughter through the rest of the song, and this is just priceless!
