August 24, 2012



Thousands made the journey to Graceland to honor the life of Elvis Presley during Elvis Week. Elvis fans who were not here to witness this year's amazing Candlelight Vigil can view our new video by clicking on the "Watch Candlelight Vigil" section on www.ElvisWeek.com.

Fans were in for a surprise when Elvis' former wife, Priscilla, and only daughter, Lisa Marie, came down the driveway to welcome thousands of fans crowded around the gates of Graceland.

"I've always avoided this because I felt that it would be too emotional, but I really felt it was important to come down here tonight," Lisa Marie told the crowd. "I love you very, very, very much."

The official number for the evening was 75,000 people in attendance and Priscilla Presley said it best while speaking to fans from around the world.

"You should see this from our point of view. It's amazing," said Priscilla, standing alongside Lisa Marie. "The candles are lit. It's truly a sight to behold."
