Photos of Elvis' Rise to Fame Now Added to Mobile Apps

August 22, 2013

As we wrap up Elvis Week 2013, we look back at Elvis' very humble beginnings and his rise to super-stardom. Elvis Aaron Presley was born to Vernon and Gladys Presley in a two-room house in Tupelo, Mississippi, on January 8, 1935. He and his parents moved to Memphis, Tennessee, in 1948, and Elvis graduated from Humes High School in 1953. Over the years, Elvis' style and music evolved with influences from the gospel music he heard in church and at the all-night gospel sings he frequently attended, plus the rhythm and blues he absorbed on Beale Street as a Memphis teenager.  In celebration of Elvis Week, we've added five photos of Elvis from his childhood days in Tupelo to his rise to fame to our Elvis Mobile 2.0 iPhone appElvis Mobile 2.0 Android app, and Elvis for iPad app.
