Elvis Presley – The King

Day 246 of Colourisation Project – January 8

Challenge: to publish daily a colourised photo that has some significance around the day of publication.

Today, January 8 marks what would have been Elvis Presley’s 80th birthday!

According to Rolling Stone on-line magazine, a new website called Elvis The Music  will go live, featuring a comprehensive online database of all things Elvis. Graceland will also livestream an 80th birthday celebration starting at 10:15 a.m. EST; (2:15 a.m. Melbourne Time – January 9) Priscilla Presley is scheduled to appear at the event.

No further commentary from me is necessary!

I leave you with a 1968 clip of Elvis when he was at his best and having fun with his music, performing Heartbreak Hotel.

Enjoy!
