HAPPY 80TH BIRTHDAY ELVIS!
Elvis Presley is one of the most iconic and influential artists of our time. Today, nearly 40 years after his August 1977 death, Elvis remains a top pop culture icon and has inspired many of the biggest musicians of the past and present.
From rock legends like Jimi Hendrix and Paul McCartney to country stars like Dolly Parton and even Luke Bryan (who has been dubbed the "Elvis of Country Music"), the King's legacy and music live on today not only in on stage, but also in the studio.
It's also no secret that Bruno Mars has been influenced by Elvis. From his pompadour hair style to his music, it's clear the King had an impact on him. And it's well known that in the early '90s Bruno was the World's Youngest Elvis Presley Impersonator. So what better way to celebrate Elvis' big 8-0 than with little Bruno's adorable throwback Elvis impersonation videos!
