ElvisLilSister Goes To Graceland

 ElvisLilSister Goes To Graceland



 How quickly time passes by when it seems like only yesterday Elvis A Presley was alive and passionate performing for his frenzied and devoted fans everywhere! Here on the 35th anniversary of his death ElvisWeek in Memphis,Tn  not only eulogized the KING but also people came from around the world to celebrate new life with the fans, musicians, neighbors, actors, relatives.....who knew him or of him to say  the least! How could one not feel such closeness to a person that not only changed the entertainment world, but culture as well....how fascinating that  one man could bring all the people together this way...share the love  and use others to light the way for those who could not attend such a moving, inspirational  week long event!The candlelite vigil solely for  me   not only wrapped up  the weeklong celebration  but  was  the real reason to come back here....              this   time  I had the honor to attend not only as a guest  Elvis Memorablia Club but also as a performer...to particpated in the candlelite vigil ...a moving experience  to proudly stand  honor guard!  Several fan clubs gathered at Graceland driveway and stood as prepared for the ceremonial lighting of the  vigil candles .... The sound of  IF I CAN DREAM lyrics, music  filled the warm summer breeze as everyone stood in silent reflection of not only why the gathered here; but also pay reverant homage to the memory of Elvis Aaron Presley!




The Clarion Hotel  became the host and hub for Elvis collectors, authors, artists, performers, actors, also  offering  day and night entertainment.Most collectors boasted about their rare artifacts of Elvis photos, cards, records,ect....One outstanding addition was the  hand-crafted guitars on display in the lobby. Each one was carefully design with  Elvis theme including  clip art of Elvis photos, mounted pieces of jewlery mini micrphone and a tiny plastic  retro  TV set  with a battery operated on n off switch! All of that including tiny clocks attached(with crazy glue!) to the wood framework of the actual guitars handpainted in 3D effect....six of them....white/gold, blue/black   red/silver  one guitar you  could see Elvis face photo inside the hole(opening)!
    

Here too I spent time with MarlynMason co starred with Elvis in Trouble With Girls (not only as her guest with  spent week together!) but also for  autograph signings and photo sessions. Fender.com  had  a presentation  along  tent area  Graceland Crossing where I did  a promo  sign & play guitar  in my PinkLadyElvis jumpsuit ( a gift from my cousin Mary Stonebraker  we are kin with Elvis's mother  Gladys side of the family  Smith) there I  also  strolled  the  trailer park & picnic area  photo shoot too!

The Arcade Restaurant near  Memphis train station  where Elvis actually dined was my inspiration for  my  song  AN ELVIS TEAR.... recalling as if it were yesterday  the  tear stained window and when I left the restaurant  it  rain on only one side of the street! The sun shone brightly on the other side that day!
   

Here was birthed my idea:  AN ELVIS TEAR
        

The Memphis sun shone sunny    that  Southern sky was blue & clear   then  something  strange &  funny  behind a raincloud  appeared I thought  I felt a raindrop  but  it quickly disappeared  it  must  have fallen from HEAVEN .....AN ELVIS TEAR.........that I had actually written   15 years ago along with ROSES ON THE PIANO & performed at  the  Peabody Charity event then  during  Elvis Week....here as if by Divine appointment I was  truly blest to have  returned  again to Memphis  as ElvisLilSister........( perhaps  the  sister he never or  almost had)

Blake Shelton auch bei der 4. The Voice Staffel in den USA dabei

Blake Shelton auch bei der 4. The Voice Staffel in den USA dabei

Seit Beginn der US-amerikanischen Version der Show „The Voice“ ist Blake Shelton neben Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green und Adam Levine einer der Coaches. Die dritte Staffel hat erst vor kurzem begonnen und Shelton hat seit dem nicht nur einmal erwähnt, dass er seinen Job dort zwar gerne macht, er aber das Gefühl habe, dass er ihn nicht mit seiner musikalischen Karriere vereinen kann. Er möchte wieder auf Tour gehen und sich intensiver auf seine Musik konzentrieren. Seine Fans, die zwar auch immer auf neue Lieder hoffen, ihn aber trotzdem nicht bei The Voice missen wollen, können nun aufatmen: auch in der viertel Staffel wird er in einem der roten Sessel sitzen. Sein Erfolg hat allerdings gar nicht unter seiner Coach-Tätigkeit gelitten. Bei den diesjährigen CMA-Awards hat er neben der Nominierung für „Entertainer of the Year“ in drei weiteren Kategorien die Chance einen Award zu bekommen.
