In the 1950s, Elvis Presley had become very popular. Elvis was known as the "King of Rock 'n' Roll", before he became famous he sang in church. Elvis's significance was his music brought people together. Elvis had been a huge part of Rock 'n' Roll history, he had paved away Rock 'n' Roll for other bands in the 1950s.
