Today Memphis, Tennessee Memphis, Tennessee is maybe most famous for a place called Graceland - an estate that was once home to Elvis Presley who died there on August 16, 1977 and which attracts over 650,000 visitors a year.

The Graceland grounds include a museum containing many Elvis artifacts, like some of his famous "Vegas jumpsuits", his awards and gold records but also his extensive car collection including his famous Pink Cadillac.

Many of the visitors have planned for years to come to the home of the "King of Rock and Roll" to celebrate the life of this extraordinary man and to enhance how he was once a poor boy who achieved success, who was an extraordinary musical talent, but also a sinner and substance abuser, a religious man devoted to the Gospel and its music.
