I've met a real Elvis fan. He was that devoted he's formed Elvis tribute bands and arranged gigs and concerts for them all over the country. He even had an Elvis phone. When the phone rang the Elvis doll on top of the phone would sing and gyrate. I was looking through Amazon to see if I could find the phone and was waylaid slightly and found this I thought was good.
I'm sure most folk know that Lisa Marie Presley is commemorating the 30th anniversary of her father's death by singing along with him. The video of a posthumous duet with her dad will be available for viewing on Spinner from tomorrow, as well as for purchase on iTunes for a charitable cause near and dear to the Presleys.
It's good to see that something worthwhile will come out of all the Elvis fuss today.
The video, directed by Tony Kaye ('American History X'), was shot in New Orleans, and, as Presley tells Spinner, she was so touched by the lingering affects of Hurricane Katrina that she decided to make this video more than just a tribute to her dad.
"I landed there to do the video, and I looked around when I got off the plane ... It looks like Katrina happened six months ago," Presley says. "So, that's when it all fell together."
The duet -- both song and video -- will be available on iTunes for downloading, starting Friday. All proceeds will go toward the building of a Presley Place transitional housing development for underprivileged families in New Orleans.
"Families come in and live there, get their life skills together," Presley explains about the charity her family originally started in Memphis. "They get jobs and then they save their money, and about a year later, they move out when they can get back on their feet. It's something [Elvis] was very interested in, because it's kinda where he started from." source - Spinner.Com
