Musician and actor Elvis Aron Presley was born on January 8 1935, in Tupelo, Mississippi. Presley was supposed to be a twin, but his brother, Jesse Garon was stillborn. From very humble beginnings, Elvis Presley grew up to become one of the biggest names in rock ‘n’ roll.
Raised by loving, working-class parents, Presley’s family had little money, and they moved from place to place frequently. He was deeply devoted to his parents, especially his mother, Gladys, and was raised to have a strong faith in God. Presley attended the Assembly of God Church with his parents, where gospel music became an important influence for him.
