Elvis Presley apps for the iPhone and iPad

By Marlon Votta - Aug 15, 2011

Elvis Presley was born on January 8, 1935, in Tupelo, Mississippi, to 18-year-old Vernon Elvis and 22-year-old Gladys Love Presley. In a house built by his father in readiness for the birth, Jesse Garon Presley, his identical twin brother, was delivered 35 minutes before him, stillborn. As an only child, Presley’s ancestry was primarily a Western European mix: On his mother’s side, he was Scots-Irish, with some French Norman; one of Gladys’s great-great-grandmothers was Cherokee. His father’s forebears were of Scottish or German origin.

The family attended an Assembly of God church where he found his initial musical inspiration. From there he went on to be one of the most popular American singers of the 20th century. Although he was also known as an actor he remained a cultural icon, he is widely known by the single name Elvis. He is often referred to as the “King of Rock and Roll” or simply “the King”.
