Photos of Elvis Playing Musical Instruments Now Added to Mobile Apps

March 18, 2013

Elvis revolutionized stage performances with his innovative dance moves and he changed the sound of American pop music with his integration of blues, country, and gospel. With a sound and style that uniquely combined his diverse musical influences, he challenged the social and racial barriers of the time and ushered in a whole new era of American music and popular culture. Even though he is often admired for his singing abilities and his contributions to live performances, Elvis also played several musical instruments. As a child, he played an acoustic guitar and later developed a love for the piano which he would often play for family and friends inside of Graceland. Although Elvis is widely known for his unique voice, Elvis loved music and the many types of genres and instruments that would prove to inspire his performances. In honor of Elvis' love of music, photos of Elvis playing various musical instruments have been added to the Elvis Mobile 2.0 iPhone appElvis Mobile 2.0 Android app, and Elvis for iPad app.
