This Is Elvis Presley's 12-year-old Cousin. After I Listened To Her Sing, I Became A Fan
It's been nearly four decades since we lost the King, but he is still popular, as countless artists take his inspiration and try to re-create his success. No one has succeeded, but in a case of the apple not falling far from the tree, 12-year-old Lauren Marie Presley, a distant cousin of Elvis, has the name and the pipes to carry on the Presley legacy. Elvis' success remains unmatched. He has sold more records than anyone in history (over one billion). In the United States alone, Elvis had 150 singles and albums that reached gold, platinum, or multi-platinum status. That number continues to grow as, even today, his music still sells. He had 18 songs hit number one, 40 in the top ten, and 149 appeared on Billboard's Hot 100 Pop Chart.
