Thousands Gather at Graceland to Mark 35th Anniversary of Elvis Presley’s Death
Thirty-five years after Elvis Presley’s death, fans still flock to commemorate the life and legacy of the King by attending a candle-light vigil in his memory. Organizers estimate that about 75,000 people showed up for this year’s memorial which began last night. This year, for the first time ever, Elvis’ former wife, Priscilla, and daughter, Lisa Marie, attended the annual event together.
Presley died from a heart attack after battling prescription drug use for years.
