August 10, 2010 at 6:34 AM (PT)
Recording artist/songwriter DEBORAH ALLEN will return to her birthplace of MEMPHIS to honor ELVIS PRESLEY on FRIDAY (8/13) during ELVIS WEEK. DEBORAH will appear on SIRIUS/XM’s ELVIS RADIO to debut “Amazing GRACELAND,” a song she penned in honor of ELVIS. Hosted by GEORGE KLEIN, ELVIS RADIO is the only all ELVIS, all the time radio station, broadcasting live from GRACELAND.
ALLEN said, “I was born and raised in MEMPHIS and have always loved ELVIS and his music. He was always in our midst. In fact my mother and daddy designed and upholstered the interior of ELVIS’s first bus. As I grew up, we used to pass by GRACELAND often, however it was not until this past CHRISTMAS that I actually stepped through the doors of GRACELAND. I was deeply moved and inspired. I could truly feel the spirit of ELVIS there. This song is a heartfelt tribute to the life of the man who gave so much to the heritage of AMERICAN music.”
“Amazing GRACELAND” will be available for download from iTUNES and other music retailers.
ELVIS WEEK 2010 will be held TODAY (8/10) through MONDAY (8/16) at GRACELAND and throughout MEMPHIS. As part of the celebration of ELVIS PRESLEY's 75th birthday year, a lineup of events are planned for the 30-40,000 fans expected to attend from around the world.
In addition to her performance on ELVIS RADIO, ALLEN will appear SUNDAY (8/15) at ALFRED’S on BEALE STREET where GEORGE KLEIN will host a reunion of ELVIS’ MEMPHIS MAFIA from 4-6p (CT). Visit www.alfredsbeale.com for more information.
