Elected Elvis To Sing At Indiana Gala

Jasonville's Mayor of Rock 'N Roll will be twisting and shouting in his best "Elvis" rendition Sunday night as part of the inaugural gala for Gov.-elect Mitch Daniels.

Borders, a well-known Elvis impersonator and recently elected state legislator, will be among a talented troupe of performers set to take the stage for the 7:30 p.m. event in the Sagamore Ballroom at the Indiana Convention Center.

The Greene County native said he was elated to get the invitation to sing from the governor-elect and added, "Mitch asked me to sing while I was at a reception he had for House and Senator members. It took me about three seconds to say 'yes'."

He'll be wearing one of his nine Elvis jumpsuits and plans to sing three songs made famous by "The King" -- "My Way," "Suspicious Minds" and "Johnny Be Good."
