Some People Who Wrote for Elvis Presley
Bigmama60 on 03/04/2009
|Elvis loved and respected Black music. In fact, many of his songs were written by Black Artists. The way Elvis could wiggle that leg and shake that hair just drove me and my brother crazy. As children we even made up a dance we called the Elvis Presley; our parents, aunts, uncles, and parent's friends graciously paid us to perform it. The truth is we would have done it for nothing. That's how enthralled we were with Elvis's moves.|
Since February was Black History Month, I thought it would be nice to acknowledge The King's fondness for Rock'n'Roll and Rhythm and Blues.
I will give you the Black writer's name, a little bio of them, and/or a clue for a song. You may recognize either the name or pseudonym of the artists. Your undertaking, should you accept, is to identify the song. Only one clue will be correct.
Black history Month introduces us to the history, cultural experiences, scientific accomplishments and major contributions made by African Americans from 1619 until today. Black History is American History.
