Elvis - The Next Generation

People are continually asking where the next generation of Elvis impersonators will come from. I tell them to look at the kids. Maybe there's a jumpsuit in the closet next door. Some are very starting young. Here's a great story about 7-year-old Demi Downing from Albany, Georgia.

Her love for Elvis started when Demi was just four years old. "One day I was watching an Elvis movie, and I just got hooked on him," said Demi. "She fell in love and told my mother she was going to marry him one day," said Heather Moore, Demi's Mother.

Since then, she hasn't stopped singing. "A true Elvis fan likes all of his songs, but if I could pick my most favorite, it would be 'Can't Help Falling in Love'" said Demi.

I'll bet she going to be very very good. Thanks to Ashley Harper of WALB News for the great story.
