Lisa Marie Presley Duets With Her Late Father Elvis in New Video [VIDEO/POLL]
I think anyone who knows me realizes I’m a huge Elvis fan. This past weekend, I ran across something on CMT that I think you might enjoy if you happen to a fan too.Elvis’s daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, has released a music video of her singing with her legendary father. The video showcases rare photographs and videos of Elvis and her as a little girl growing up during the Graceland years. The video was recorded in August to commemorate the 35th Anniversary of Elvis Presley’s death and was to be viewed by only 25,000 fans at the special anniversary concert. But when word of the song “I Love You Because” came out, fans wanted her to release it worldwide and the response has been incredible.
The song was originally recorded by Elvis back in 1954 at Sun Studio in Memphis at the same time he recorded “That’s Alright Mama.” Producer Sam Phillips labeled it unsuitable for Presley’s first single, and it ended up on Presley’s first album, from 1956, never to be performed by Presley again, according to CMT.
The single will be available for purchase digitally on Tuesday, and the full video on iTunes on October 25. Lisa Marie is also planning a concert tour in November with a stop at the famed Carnegie Hall.
I’ve always thought Lisa Marie looks so much like her dad but the good news is, I hear Lisa is ready to step out of the shadow of her famous father and that she is done fighting the legacy as the only child of the legendary King of Rock n’ Roll.
Check out the sneak preview now from CMT.
