Elvis Presley

The King of Rock and Roll

The "King"

As a boy, this amazing man was very shy at first and learned from his shyness to become a more confident man. He was beloved for his handsomeness and everyone adored him and his angel-like voice. And his determination led him to never give up even in the hardest times. Some people had the chance to be alive at the same time that he was but many people did not. This amazing man was Elvis Presley.
