Elvis Presley Biography

Elvis Aaron Presley was born to be a legend. He had all the formulas he needed; the good looks, talent, success and generosity.

He and his stillborn identical twin Jesse were born in Tupelo, Mississippi, on January 8, 1935. Born to Vernon Elvis Presley and Gladys Love Smith, Elvis has shown his musical talent since he was just a little boy as he once participated in a youth talent contest at the Mississippi-Alabama Fair and Dairy Show held in Tupelo. Ever since, he sang with his guitar that his mother bought for him. Later on in the late 1948, the family moved to Memphis, Tennessee, where in 1953, he graduated from Humes High School before previously attended at Milam Junior High in Tupelo. He soon worked at Parker Machinists Shop after graduation. One day, during his hectic activities, Elvis wondered what was it like to have his voice recorded. Thus, he went to Memphis Recording Service, later renamed to Sun Studio, to record a demo entitled "My Happiness" and "That's When Your Heartaches Begin" for about $4.00 and gave it to his mother. He moved from his old job and worked at Precision Tool Company. He also went to a night school, where he studied to be an electrician and eventually landed on another job at Crown Electric Company.
