Fans Celebrate Elvis' 76th Birthday in Memphis

Saturday, 08 Jan 2011 01:21 PM

 

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Hundreds of Elvis Presley fans, including Chilean miner Edison Pena, have gathered at Graceland to sing "Happy Birthday" on the late rock n' roll icon's 76th birthday.

Pena, the guest of honor Saturday at Elvis' birthday party, cut into a 4-foot high cake fashioned to look like stacked television sets as fans cheered both the singer and the miner outside Elvis' longtime Memphis home.

Presley was born Jan. 8, 1935, in Tupelo, Miss.

His birthday, while meaningful to Elvis fans around the world, does not attract the throngs of people who make the pilgrimage to Graceland to remember his death. He died Aug. 16, 1977.

Pena has said that Presley's music helped him when he and 32 fellow miners were trapped underground last year.
