"Images of the King" part 1

Every year in August hundreds of Elvis Tribute Artists converge on Memphis, TN for the annual "Images of the King" competition held during Elvis Week. Each believe they can become the best in their chosen musical field, the World's Best Elvis. Army Spc. Rob Langford believes this is his year.

Retired Maj. Gen. John Oblinger, who first hired Langford for a party at Fort Bliss' Officers Club, said Langford "was really a big hit with the all-age crowd."

"Everyone that hears him really loves him," Oblinger said. "He shakes with his arms and whatnot. But he doesn't do what used to get Elvis in trouble, and we appreciate it."

For more info see this article in the El Paso Times. I'll post more competitor stories, and the results, as I find them.
