The Elvis Presley Birthday Celebration - 75th - Elvis Presley - Memories



The Elvis Presley Birthday Celebration

FAST FACTS: 75th - Elvis Presley - Memories

Fans from all over the globe brave temps in the teens to mark Elvis Presley's 75th BirthdayLisa Marie, Priscilla and 2 of Elvis' grandchildren made an appearance Friday at Graceland

Mother & daughter thanks fans for showing up on such a cold winter day (Memphis-1/8/10) Despite temperatures in the teens, Elvis Presley fans from all over the globe came to Graceland Friday to celebrate his 75th birthday.

This year 3 generations of Presley's were also there to mark the occasion.

Elvis Presley's grand children, Riley and Benjamin helped cut his 75th birthday cake. Their mother Lisa Marie also made a rare appearance at Graceland, along side Priscilla. Both thanked fans for showing up in some less than ideal conditions.

"I don't think I've been here when it's been this cold and see all of you celebrate really touches all of our hearts," said Priscilla Presley

"Once again thank for waiting for staying. It's freezing. We love you so much," said Lisa Marie Presley.

Kathy and Steve Curtis have been coming to Graceland twice a year since 1980 and were even married at the Blue Sued Chapel. The Dallas couple didn't want to miss the party this year.

"You know if you are an Elvis fan it doesn't matter what the degrees are because we are burning love inside," said Kathy Curtis.

Martha Dubois traveled from Belgium with 67 other Elvis fans. Dubois has already met Priscilla's and was hoping to get near Lisa Marie. She says she wouldn't want to be anywhere else on this day.

"You do it once in your life when its 75 years," said Dubois.

And even a broken wrist couldn't keep one Brit from traveling all the way from London to Memphis for Elvis' 75th.

"The doctors told me I couldn't fly and I said I got to get to Graceland for Elvis' birthday and they took the cast off and just gave me a splint, but it was worth it," said Jones.

Most thought it would be warmer in Memphis, but say who cares about the cold when you come to Graceland.

"I'm so happy we could be here today and we'll see you soon. Thank you," said Lisa Marie.

The cake for the part was created by a West Memphis Bakery and selected by thousands of Elvis fans online.

Words Lyrics
by Lyrics

Smile an everlasting smile
A smile could bring you near to me
Don't ever let me find you're gone
'Cause that could bring a tear to me

This world has lost its glory
Let's start a brand new story now, my love

Right now there'll be no other time
And I can show you all my love

Talk in everlasting words
And dedicate them all to me
And I will give you all my life
I'm here if you should call to me

You think that I don't even mean
A single word I say

It's only words and words are all I have
To take your heart away

You think that I don't even mean
A single word I say

It's only words and words are all I have
To steal your heart away
It's only words and words are all I have
To steal your heart away
It's only words and words are all I have
To steal your heart away, heart away, ya baby
