-- Elvis Aaron Presley was born to Vernon and Gladys Presley in a two-room house in Tupelo, Mississippi, on January 8, 1935. His twin brother, Jessie Garon, was stillborn, leaving Elvis to grow up as an only child. In 1954, Elvis began his singing career with the legendary Sun Records label in Memphis. His musical influences were the pop and country music of the time, the gospel music he heard in church and at the all-night gospel sings he frequently attended, and the black R+B he absorbed on historic Beale Street as a Memphis teenager.
