Upcoming Contest for Elvis Insiders Basic & Plus Members

November 29, 2012


On Friday, November 30, by 10:00 a.m. CST, we'll be posting instructions on how to enter in the Elvis Insiders CONTEST section, which is only accessible to Insiders Basic and Plus members.

Five lucky winners will win a copy of the "Elvis Christmas" album. For the first time on a single disc, this is a collection of Elvis' holiday songs from his 1957 hit album "Elvis' Christmas Album" and his equally acclaimed 1971 "Elvis Sings The Wonderful World of Christmas" album. The 1970 Camden Version of "Elvis Christmas Album" was the first of Elvis' records to receive a Diamond certification by the Recording Industry Association of America, after selling more than 10 million copies. The Diamond award was presented during Elvis Week 2012 as part of the 35th celebration. Originally released in October of 1957, this was the fourth album recorded by Elvis on the RCA Victor Records label. The album spent four weeks at #1 on the Billboard Top Pop Albums chart and was the first of his Christmas-themed albums. Released in 1971, "Elvis Sings The Wonderful World Of Christmas" was also a top seller and topped the Billboard Holiday Albums Chart, eventually earning the Triple Platinum status by the RIAA. This combination of Elvis' classic holiday hits includes Christmas-time favorites, classical hymns, as well as several gospel tunes that reflect the spirit of the season.
