DALLAS - We’re all shook up about the 39th anniversary of the death of the king of rock and roll, Elvis Presley.
“I can still remember that day, that moment, I am sure we all can when Elvis died, what we were doing, who we were with,” Elvis tribute artist Kraig Parker said.
Parker has been an Elvis tribute artist for the past 20 years.
It all started when he was asked to Don’t Be Cruel and play Elvis at an office party.
“The electricity I felt in that room was like nothing I ever felt before on stage. Decided to do it again and entered a contest and won some money," said Parker.
Parker told himself It’s Now or Never and quit his day job to go on the road like a Hound Dog. He has a show scheduled for Saturday at the Eisemann Center called Elvis Forever.
In Memphis on Monday night, there was a vigil for the kings anniversary despite Suspicious Minds from a Black Lives Matter protest just blocks away.
