Music has always been a part of this world since the beginning and the people have shaped it as they felt during time. We had traditional music, symphonic music and then in the early 1940’s more genres of popular music combined in the United States and rock and roll was born.
The young rebels of those years chose from blues, country music, jazz and gospel music what they liked; elements that mixed together in an original style gave voice to their internal energy. This trend created a generation the world had never seen. In the middle of all these a young boy was learning how to play his guitar and working his voice, he realized that he was different from others. Soon the whole world would notice. His name was Elvis Aaron Presley.
Being impressed by the so-called "King of rock 'n' roll" Elvis Aaron Presley, I made the decision of gathering information on him and finally writing my paper.
I have structured it into three chapters. The first one is called "Early life". As the title suggests, I presented his origins. He was born in 1935 in Tupelo, Mississippi. Belonging to a religious family and attending church, the young boy found his initial music inspiration there. In the other two chapters I tried to summarize his career and explain a little bit about his music performance, his life events, family and last but not least his death and unforgettable changes he brought to entertainment industry.
Elvis Presley, also known as the "King of Rock and Roll," was a legendary musician and cultural icon. He rose to fame in the mid-1950s with his electrifying stage presence, innovative fusion of different musical genres, and iconic voice. His impact on the music industry and popular culture was immense, paving the way for future generations of musicians and influencing countless artists across the world. Despite his untimely death in 1977, Elvis continues to be celebrated and remembered as one of the most influential figures in the history of popular music. This foreword is a testament to his lasting legacy and a tribute to the timeless music he created.
CHAPTER I. Early life
Elvis Aaron Presley in the humblest of circumstances, was born to Vernon and Gladys Presley in a two-room house, built by his father, in Tupelo, Mississippi on January 8, 1935. His twin brother, Jessie Garon, was stillborn, leaving Elvis to grow up as an only child. Presley's ancestry was primarily a Western European mix, including Scots-Irish, Scottish, German, and some French Norman. When Elvis was 13 years old he and his parents moved to Memphis, Tennessee in 1948.
He followed Humes High School, and it is known that Presley was the subject of bullying at school; classmates threw things at him—rotten fruit and stuff—because he was different, because he was quiet and he stuttered and he was a mama's boy. After he graduated in 1953, Presley was still a rather shy person, a "kid who had spent scarcely a night away from home".
Not long after he finished school he occasionally worked evenings to boost the family income.
