His style was unique and instantly recognizable, with his signature sideburns and flashy clothing.

Elvis was also one of the first mainstream celebrities to cross over into films, appearing in 33 movies during his career.

What Elvis would be doing today if he were alive

Of course, Elvis’s personal life would be very different if he were alive today. He would have seen his daughter grow up and get married, and he would have been a grandfather several times over.
