Elvis Presley was one of America’s greatest entertainers and one of the most charismatic singers in the history of popular music. In addition to selling more records and earning more gold and platinum records than any other artist in history, he was also a movie star who appeared in dozens of films starting in 1956 with Love Me Tender and including Jailhouse Rock (1957), King Creole (1958), and Viva Las Vegas (1964). He received 14 Grammy nominations, winning three times as well as a Lifetime Achievement Award in 1971, and he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986.
His talent, charming good looks, and sincere humility endeared him to millions of fans around the world – most of whom were devastated by his premature death in 1977.
