Which is one step up from a few weeks ago, when they were just abandoning the bodies in fields in the summer heat.
Paying Tribute to “The King” During Elvis Week
“I like to say that my job description is singing the greatest music ever created and making people happy in the process,” says Elvis tribute artist Dean Zeligman (@deanzaselvis), who makes his living performing as Elvis across the globe. This time last year, Dean beat out more than 500 other artists to take top honors at Graceland’s (@visitgraceland), Elvis Week competition.
There’s more to being an Elvis tribute artist than one might expect. “We must make the unnatural natural,” explains Dean. “His movements and mannerisms must be as natural to us as our own. I studied theatrical makeup to match his facial features, recreated all of his stage wear and even his casual clothes. Nothing is done half-heartedly.”
