Lisa Marie Presley doesn’t make a habit of attending music awards show ceremonies. However, it was pleasant surprise to see her on hand at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards. Presley was on hand to present the Spotlight Award to Katy Perry. Lisa Marie Presley Biography
Lisa Marie Presley in concert at the Gramercy Theatre in the Big Apple promoting her latest album Storm & Grace, although was forced to cut the set short due to vocal irritations.
Following her rendition of Over Me, Presley explained that her throat was drying up, blaming it on age. She claimed: ‘Maybe its because Im getting old.’ Her record sales haven’t exactly been promising either, with her third album efforts reaching a miserly No 45 in the US chart.
Watch the emotional duet featuring Lisa Marie Presley and Elvis singing ‘I Love You Because’. The audio ‘single’ is now available to purchase from iTunes and the video will be available soon. The video itself is a masterpiece that I must say brought tears to my eyes. You will see Lisa Marie in the Sun studio recording the song and home film of Elvis’ grandchildren, Lisa Marie and Priscilla.
Lisa Marie performs a wonderful duet with her late father and does not ‘take over’ the song – with the first 1 minute 33 seconds with only Elvis’ vocals before Lisa joins in for the remaining 1 minute 22 seconds.
