Celebrating Elvis Presley’s Birthday – January 8 [VIDEO]

You really can’t be in the entertainment business and not acknowledge the king of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley.When almost anyone talks about music, a lot of the time Elvis’s name is brought up.

He was born in a two room house in Tupelo, Mississippi, on January 8, 1935. Elvis made 31 movies including Viva Las Vegas, Jailhouse Rock and Love Me Tender.

One of his most notable appearances was on tv on the Ed Sullivan Show – a weekly variety show,  on January 6, 1957 (two days before his birthday). The cameramen were instructed to only show Elvis from the waist up, because it was thought of being obscene, the way that Elvis moved his hips and legs, something that most people would find hard to believe in this day and age.

Besides his rock music, Elvis actually converted to country in the mid 1950s with “Heartbreak Hotel.”
