Elvis Presley Biography

Elvis Presley began his singing career in 1954 with the legendary Sun Records label in Memphis. In late 1955, his recording contract was sold to RCA Victor and by 1956, he was an international sensation. With musical influences spanning pop, country, gospel, and R&B, Elvis' unique sound and style crossed social and racial barriers to usher in a new era of American music and pop culture. He starred in 33 successful films, made history with his television appearances and specials, and broke countless records with his live concert performances on the legendary Las Vegas tour. Globally, he has sold over one billion records, more than any other artist in history. Among his many awards and accolades were 14 Grammy nominations, 3 in which he won, and the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award at age 36. Known to the world by his first name, Elvis' long-lasting persona continues to inspire today's most innovative musicians, designers, artists, and social influencers.
