Lisa Marie Presley made jaws drop and hearts quiver with a mixture of surprise and delight when she performed a digitally powered duet with her late father, Elvis. As a surprise for a special event, Lisa arranged to have her and The King’s voices digitally combined while a music video was flashed on the big screens. The video featured photos of Elvis with Lisa when she was still a little girl.
The perfect song choice was, of course, a huge factor in driving the audience to tears. Elvis and Lisa performed Don’t Cry Daddy for their digital duet. The beautiful and spotless mixture of their voices really made it seem like they did share the stage in one unforgettable performance.
The late Elvis, the King of Rock and Roll, died of a heart attack on August 16, 1977. Prior to his shocking and sudden demise, he made history after the launch of his career in 1954. He signed with Sun Records label and by 1956, Elvis had already grown into an international sensation. The King’s distinct musical style paired with a wide range of artistic influences brought a hurricane of a new era in the American music scene. His fame and musicality broke the walls built around racial and social differences. As such, it is no wonder why so many people adored the sensational artist.
On top of that, Elvis starred in over 33 successful films, garnered 14 Grammy nominations, gold, platinum multi-platinum awards and won 3 Grammys. He also joined the U.S. Army and was titled One of the Ten Outstanding Young Men of the Nation for the year 1970.
Lisa Marie’s career, on the other hand, jump-started in 1985. Lisa was only 9 years old when her father passed. As the sole heir to her Elvis’s estate, she then worked hard to build her own career, and successfully produce three albums, Storm & Grace, Now What, and To Who It May Concern. She has performed in different tours and released 6 singles namely, Lights Out, Sinking In, Dirty Laundry, Idiot, In the Ghetto, and You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet.
