    Today marks the anniversary of the death of Elvis Presley.

    Born in Tupelo, Mississippi, Presley moved to Memphis, Tennessee with his family when he was 13 years old. In 1954, his music career took off when he recorded a song with producer Sam Phillips at Sun Records. Presley worked with guitarist Scotty Moore and bassist Bill Black, to popularize the rockabilly genre of music -- an uptempo, backbeat-driven fusion of R&B and country music.

    Presley's first single "Heartbreak Hotel" was released in January of 1956 on RCA and became a No.1 hit in the United States. After a series of successful TV appearances and chart-topping records, he became widely regarded as the leading figure of rock and roll.
