before a concert!

In 1935, Glady's and Vernon Presley gave birth to two sons. The first, Jesse Garon was still born. The second, Elvis Aron, was alive and well .He grew up in the worst part of Tuepelo Miss. He was seen as one of the poorest kids in town. However, Elvis was destine for great things but not in Mississppii. When Elvis was in middle school his family moved north to Memphis, Tennessee. There, although still poor, Elvis would become influenced by the people and music around him. In high school he became a truck driver and made his first Memphis performance in a high school talent show. It wasn't his first all around performance though. Elvis was seen as somone different. He was poor, a truck driver, and wore akward clothes and hair styles that only african-americans wore at that time. Music fueled Elvis right into Sun studios in 1954 to do a recording of "My Happiness".  In 1955, the localy owned record studio in Memphis, called Elvis back this time was by special request from the owner Sam Phillips. Elvis, Scotty Moore, and Bill Black kicked around a few tunes and pretty soon they had "That's Allright Mama". It was expolsive an something no one had ever heard. After that release the rest became history. In 1956, Elvis singed a new contract and became the biggest star the world had ever seen. With his hip-shakin' style Elvis pushed Rock 'n' Roll into the white supremecy as the number one sound. He revolutionized the world with his music and stunned us with his talent in Hollywood. In all the late 50's brought Elvis hits like "Hound Dog", "Don't Be Cruel" and his first national hit "Heartbreak Hotel". He starred in rebel roles like "Jailhouse Rock" and "King Creole" and showed his shy-country boy side in "Love Me Tender" and "Loving You". He had established himself. He bought a castle known as Graceland and became the highest paid entertainer of the decade. He truley was the King of Rock 'N' Roll now! He had it all but it would all end quickly, for Uncle Sam would come a calling to Graceland's mailbox. Elvis had been drafted!
