It's hard to believe, 35 years after Elvis Presley took his final bow, his music is still creating controversy? A small High School in Utah was embroiled in a public brouhaha, over a High School musical, which included the Elvis Presley song, "All Shook Up."
Jan. 3, AP-Sat Lake City cited, "A parent who was "All Shook Up" about Elvis Presley songs in a high-school drama prompted educators to cancel the musical, deeming it too sexual. But the decision was reversed Thursday by administrators at the high school south of Salt Lake City.'
In keeping pace with lyrics by today's standard's, in the various genres of music, finding sexual explicitly in a Elvis Presley song seems extreme.
Hawaii loves Elvis! As a tribute to the artist, a concert film will be aired to commemorate the 40th anniversary of his live concert, filmed in Hawaii.
Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc. is sponsering the event, Elvis Presley's "Aloha from Hawaii 40th Anniversary Screening." The enhanced screening of the re-mastered concert footage, will take place at the Neal Blaisdell Arena in Honolulu, Hawaii, on Monday, Jan. 14, 2013, at 7:30 p.m. Reserved tickets are $35.00.
“Aloha from Hawaii” was beamed live via satellite, and seen in 40 countries, by 1.5 billion people. It is still regarded as the most watched broadcast by an individual entertainer in television history.
