Elvis! Opens at the Newseum
Experience the power of Elvis Presley and the explosive impact he had on music and popular culture in the Newseum's newest exhibit "Elvis! His Groundbreaking, Hip-Shaking, Newsmaking Story."
The exhibit opened March 19, 2010, in what would have been Presley's 75th birthday year. It tells the story of Presley as he was portrayed in the news media and how his music and physicality pushed the boundaries of mainstream taste and free expression.
Produced in collaboration with Elvis Presley Enterprises, the exhibit includes a number of rare objects from the vaults of Graceland that have never been publicly displayed, including private telegrams, letters and scrapbooks that chronicle Presley's rise as a music and media sensation.
A Newseum-produced video featuring vintage footage of Presley will be broadcast on the 90-foot-long video wall in the Robert H. and Clarice Smith Big Screen Theater.
• Rare photographs and original newspapers and magazines covering Presley's career.
• Presley's iconic 1957 Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
• The "American Eagle" jumpsuit and cape Presley wore during rehearsals for his "Aloha From Hawaii" concert in 1973.
• The gold-and-diamond belt presented to Presley in 1969 for breaking Las Vegas attendance records.
We Want Gaga And... Elvis
The British public recently voted that the duet they’d most like to see happen would be with the late Elvis Presley and Lady GaGa, according to a new online poll by Match.com.
Kate Taylor from Match.com said: “Lady GaGa and Elvis are both strong vocalists, with great charisma who just ooze sex appeal. They’re passionate, powerful performers who aren’t afraid to show their emotions through their music. Just think of the fireworks if these two had ever shared a stage together.”
She continues: “Today over half of us believe a potential partner’s taste in music is very important (55%). Why? Because music helps forge a bond at the start of a relationship, provides strength during difficult times and triggers happy memories to keep the spark alive.”

Lady Gaga and Elvis Presley
Michael Buble and Nina Simone
