Elvis Presley Short Biography

Born on 8 January 1935, in Tupelo, Mississippi, United States, Elvis Aaron Presley was an American musician and actor and is considered a legend in rock and roll history.

Presley grew up in a family with humble beginnings. He was very close to his mother who raised Presley as a devout Catholic.

At age 11, Presley received his first guitar and would often bring it to school. He spent most of his time in high school learning how to play the guitar, but was too shy to perform live.

Although Presley had no formal training and could not read notes, he recorded his first demo record in August 1953 and released his first single “That’s All Right” in 1954.

On January 10, 1956, Presley recorded for RCA Nashville, and on January 27 he released his first No.1 single, Heartbreak Hotel. In the same year, he signed with Paramount Pictures.

Following several live performances and TV appearances, Presley’s crazed fans grew in numbers. He amassed a large following and Presley became known worldwide for his gyrating moves.

Upon returning from service in the military, Presley focused on his film career and continued to tour and make music until his death.

Throughout his career, Elvis Presley was the recipient of numerous Grammy awards and was awarded the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 1971. He was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2018.
