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)
