Elvis Aaron Presley was born in a poor American family. His father did any job he could find to support his wife and son. It is hard to believe now that Elvis owned $300 million net worth and he continues to make millions of dollars per year in spite of the fact, he has been dead for a long time. He easily makes money from Heaven – in 2016 he earned $27 million (according to Forbes). Most part of that amount comes from selling of Presley’s albums.

Elvis’s secret of success is simple. He was incredibly talented and it was noticeable from his kindergarten age. Eight-year-old Presley made the hearts tremble with delight, when he was singing church hymns on Sundays. At that very age he won the talent show at the annual fair, which was arranged in his city. He had deep voice and could charm the public from the first seconds of his singing. But he had never thought that music making can become his profession, that’s why he started to work in his teens. The future millionaire sold tickets in the local movie theater and was going to become a truck driver.

Everything has changed in 1953, when Presley came to the recording studio “Sun”. He saved some extra money to make a present for his mother’s birthday. He wanted to record a song “That's All Right, Mama” to give it to his dearest person in the world. The talent of the young fellow was noticed by the studio owner and soon Presley was offered his first lucrative deal.

It is hard to overprize Elvis Presley’s success. He got Grammy 9 times, sold millions of copies of his albums and participated in numerous hit movies like “Love Me Tender”, “Girls! Girls! Girls!”, “Double Trouble” etc. His name can be found in Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, in Country Music Hall of Fame, in Hollywood Hall of Fame etc.

Till now he remains the idol for many music lovers all over the world.
