Viva Elvis (Soundtrack)
Released: Nov 2010
Cirque Du Soleil had such success with The Beatles LOVE project that they've decided to take on the legacy of Elvis Presley. The producers keep Elvis' voice and transfixing charisma front-and-center, but slot in different musical backings and vocal guests to work with the choreography of the show. It illustrates how Elvis was grounded in so much American music of all stripes and how he ultimately influenced so much more to come. This gives Presley fanatics a new prism to see The King through, while getting young listeners to explore Elvis' recorded legacy.
