Elvis Presley

 

Elvis Aaron Presley -(January 8, 1935 – August 16, 1977).

Known as the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Aaron Presley dominated American popular music in the 1950s, and became even more famous after his tragic death in 1977.

Born into a poor Southern family, Elvis Presley's blend of rockabilly, gospel, and black-influenced rhythm and blues, along with his sexual swagger, made him into the most popular and influential artist to a generation of music fans.
