Adam Lambert has joined a slew of famed celebrities to honor Elvis Presley in a special tribute book. On Monday (February 17) he tweeted his excitement about the project: “Check this out! A photography project I'm a part of ! Such amazing company! @Chrisaphoto's Shades of Elvis! http://fb.me/19eUEH2Wv”
The book, 'Shades of Elvis,' is by Christopher Ameruoso and Priscilla Presley. It is a photography book that includes images of more than 75 different artists wearing/posing with a pair of Elvis's sunglasses. To get a glimpse of what to expect in the book, check out the promo video above. As the video shows, some of the talent featured in the book include: Steven Tyler, Robert Plant, Lionel Richie, Johnny Depp, Celine Dion, Rob Lowe, Ozzy Osbourne, and Elton John, among others.
Many people have seen a likeness between Adam and Elvis in the past, which makes him an obvious choice for this project. In fact, the similarity has even prompted some to create side-by-side comparison images which shows the striking resemblance.
It seems that Adam made quite an impression on Christopher Ameruoso, as he tweeted to fans, “Priscilla Presley & I adore Adam. He looked amazing wearing Elvis's shades can't wait for you all to see the final March 7.” How excited are you to see it?
