ELVIS PRESLEY - born on 8th January

Born on January 8, 1935, in Tupelo, Mississippi, Elvis Presley came from very humble beginnings and grew up to become one of the biggest names in rock 'n' roll.
 By the mid-1950s, he appeared on the radio, television and the silver screen. 
On August 16, 1977, at age 42, he died of heart failure, which was related to his drug addiction.
 Since his death, Presley has remained one of the world's most popular music icons.

As the world celebrates the King of Rock 'n' Roll on his birthday, Memphis and Shelby County officials have also proclaimed January 8 to be Elvis Presley Day since 2011 due to his lasting legacy and impact on pop culture.
