Elvis Presley: King of Rock and Roll

Elvis Presley is one of the most recognizable rock and roll singers in history. He was born on January 8, 1935 in Tupelo, Mississippi. He was also a film actor. His first hit was in 1955. Elvis had one song that was number 1 for six months! I chose his song, Jailhouse Rock. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PpsUOOfb-vE. It makes me think of dancing because the rhythm was very intriguing. Some events at the time the song was released (1957) were: Russia launches first Earth orbiting satellite and President Eisenhower calls aid to the Middle East.
