Today in American History…

Today in American history…Elvis Presley died on August 16, 1977 at the age of 42 at his home in Memphis, Tennessee.

It’s one of those moments on one’s life that you remember where or what you were doing when you heard the news. For me specifically, I was only seven years old and my mother was a huge fan of his. She picked me up from the babysitter that afternoon and she was crying. I asked her what was wrong and she explained to me, through her tears, that Elvis had died that morning.

Thank you for the music, Elvis.
