Elvis Presley -'King of Rock'n'Roll'

Today I want to talk about Elvis Presley. I am sure you all know him, but let me show you a picture of him. First I want to teIl you something about himself. Then I will teIl you a man‘s opinion of EI vis Presley.

Elvis Presley was born at the eighth of January 1935 in East Tupelo. He was a twin, but his brother died after birth. Elvis' family was very poor. Elvis had a good education. He sang in a choir. At the age often Elvis got his first guitar.




IN 1953 Elvis finished his school. Then he made money with driving trucks. Elvis produced a record for his mother who this time had her birthday. This record was called 'My happiness'.

In the year 1954 Elvis made the first records in the Sunstudio. 5000 records of 'That's allright, mama' were sold .after a TV -show. So EIvis went on tours.

In 1956 he sang the songs 'Heartbreak hotel', 'Don't be cruel', 'Jailhouse Rock' and 'Love me tender'. And he started to act in films. In March Elvis bought a church which was very expensive. The church was rebuilt to a residence with 24 rooms.

In 1961 Elvis gave his last concert for the following eight years in Honolulu.


InI 1967 Elvis married the twenty-one year old girl Priscilla Beaulieu.

So the dreanls of some women were destroyed. Therefore some women killed themselves.

In 1968 the daughter Lisa Mary was born. Today she is the wife of popstar Michael Jackson. Then Elvis gave concerts again.


In 1969 Elvis was represented in the US-charts again with the song 'In the ghetto ' .

In 1973 Elvis was divorced frorn Priscilla. Frorn this time on Elvis' records weren't sold as before.




In 1974 Elvis fell ill. He was very fat and nobody was allowed to take a picture of hirn.

In 1977 on the 26th of June, Elvis gave his last public concert in Indianapolis.

EIvis died on the 16th of August of a heart attack. 80.000 people came to his funeral.

After his death his records and souvenirs were very expensive. EIvis Ieft 800 Million Dollars behind.

In 1988 a man wrote in the Rennbahnexpress that he was sure Elvis was still alive. He wrote Elvis lived happiIy on an island. Elvis had known a man who died of cancer. This man looked similar to him. Therefore they changed their existence.

This is only one opinion of a man. We don't know if it's the truth or not. I think that Elvis is dead.

I hope you now know more about ELVIS PRESLEY.

Now pIease listen to some songs:

Love me tender

J ailhouse Rock

In the ghetto
