Elvis Presley on Freegal

Elvis Presley, the King of Rock-n-Roll, was born on January 8, 1935 in Tupelo, Mississippi.  Elvis got his first guitar when he was eleven and had his first number one hit, Heartbreak Hotel, when he was twenty-one.  He went on to have eighty songs on the Billboard Top 40.

If you want to hear some of the music Elvis made popular, visit the Freegal downloadable music site.  With your library card you can download some Elvis tunes and see why he continues to be popular even now, thirty-seven years after his death.

Math Practice:  If Elvis was alive today, how old would he be?  (Hint: Subtract the year Elvis was born from 2014.)
