Elvis Presley Net Worth

Elvis Presley Net Worth $300 Million

Elvis Presley was born in Mississippi, and is known for being the person that popularized rock and roll in the 50's and for his wild performances and good looks. This famous singer and musician was influenced by African-American rhythm and blues, and was the one artist that took the world by storm. He was one of the most significant musical and cultural icons of the 20th century, and many still refer to him as "the King of Rock and Roll" (or simply "the King").

He was born in Tupelo, Mississippi, but moved to Memphis, Tennessee when he was 13 years old. His music career began there in 1954, when he started to work with Sam Phillips (owner of Sun Records). Guitarist Scotty Moore and bassist Bill Black were an essential part of Presley’s rock sound, that was early popularized by them as a rockabilly, backbeat-driven fusion of country music and blues. RCA Victor made him sign a music contract, but it was a deal arranged by Colonel Tom Parker, who became the singer’s manager for more than two decades. "Heartbreak Hotel" was Presley's first RCA single and was released in January 1956, quickly becoming the number-one hit in the USA.

The King became the leading figure of rock and roll after his network television appearances and top record singles. His energized and sexually provocative performance style made him enormously popular and controversial, and now has an estimated net worth of $300 million. He’s one of the many wealthy stars who are not alive to enjoy their money.
