January 08 - 87th Birthday Celebrations

Today marks what would have - and perhaps could have or should have - been Elvis' 87th birthday

Isn't it really something that all these years after his death he is still missed. He lives on in the hearts of his millions of fans around the world. Someone like Elvis only comes around once in a lifetime.

2022 also marks the 45th anniversary of his passing in 1977. Fans around the world will be celebrating the life and legacy of the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll throughout the year, starting with Elvis week 2022 from January 6th to 9th.  

On this very chilly January day, a faithful bunch of Elvis fans gathered to watch Priscilla Presley and Graceland / EPE officials cut the birthday cake and the proclamation of Elvis Presley Day by Memphis and Shelby County officials.

Ginger Alden remembered Elvis: With special memories of celebrating Elvis's last birthday with him in Palm Springs in 1977. What a magical life he led! So deeply missed and loved. Happy 87th birthday this January 8th Elvis!... forever in my heart!

Priscilla Presley posted: Thank you all who came to Graceland to help celebrate Elvis’s 87th birthday. I was thrilled to see the crowd and so many familiar faces. It was cold but I knew that you’d come… through thick and thin. I consider you all… the family within the family, Loyal, Steadfast and True. Just what he loved about his fans. 

This year marks 45 years of Elvis’ passing. It’s still, after all these years, hard to accept that he’s not here. But with your help…his legacy we will pass on
