In 1947, a local radio station offered Elvis the chance to sing a song that would go live over the airwaves of across his home city, but as he was just eleven years old at the time, he was too shy to take up the offer and turned it down!
At age 18, Elvis recorded and pressed his very first musical record. It cost him $4 to make, and the only reason he did it was a gift for his mother at a local recording studio where anyone could pay to record a song.
Elvis purchased his very first guitar when he was only eleven years old. He originally wanted to be gifted a rifle to fit in with the other boys his age in his neighbourhood, but his mother convinced him to buy a guitar instead and the rest is history.
Elvis recorded his first official song, That's All Right, in 1954. A local radio DJ picked up the record one day and played it and loved it so much that he went on to play it a further thirteen times that same day. The station listeners refused to believe that the song was being performed by a white man!
Elvis made a famous television appearance in 1956 in which the host Milton Berle advised him to perform without his guitar so the audience could see him better. He proceeded to make his trademark hip dancing movement and caused outrage among some viewers, afterwards being nicknamed Elvis The Pelvis.
Elvis only ever performed outside of the United States five times, on a three-day tour of Canada in 1957. There are rumours that the reason for this is because his long-time manager Colonel Tom Parker was an illegal immigrant, and therefore could not apply for a passport.
Elvis is distantly related to two former Presidents of the United States. The first is Abraham Lincoln and the second is Jimmy Carter.
Elvis was drafted in to the US Army in 1957, and during this time he was only able to spend his government salary of $78 dollars per month. While he was away, his music generated a fortune of $400,000.
