Virtual Event: The Movie Music of Elvis Presley
Thursday June 17 @ 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Elvis Presley was a pioneer of the music industry, similar to what Bing Crosby was in the 1930s and what The Beatles brought to the world in the 1960s. Elvis had all the tools: a distinctive style, good looks, a passion for his craft and an absolutely beautiful voice. And he put them all together like no one else in history. So where does one start when making a movie music show about Elvis?
We decided to place the emphasis on the first half of his 23-year career, which began in 1954. We strove to capture his natural joy of doing what he did better than anyone of his generation, or perhaps any generation: singing from the depths of his soul.
You’ll also recognize immediately that we’ve made every effort to split the screen between Elvis and his leading ladies. Elvis would have liked that, even if his longtime manager Colonel Tom Parker would not. Enjoy the movie music of Elvis Presley with presenter John LeGear.
