Elvis Presley, recognized by TIME magazine as the "Artist of the Century," has sold more records than any other artist or group in the history of modern music. Even after death, his image and music continue to be loved and celebrated throughout the world. This past summer was established as the official 50th Birthday of Rock-n-roll commemorating Sun Records release of Elvis Presley’s song “That’s all right Mama”. With recent number ones on Billboard and Great Britain’s charts, Elvis once again proves he is gone, but not forgotten. Keeping the memory alive at countless venues throughout the country Chris MacDonald lovingly brings back the magic of the “King of Rock-n-Roll” with his tribute Memories of Elvis.
An energetic and experienced entertainer, MacDonald has performed in the famous Legends in Concert stage productions in such cities as Branson, MO, and Las Vegas, NV, Hollywood, Florida and has even appeared with Elvis Presley’s original back up group The Jordanaires as well as D.J. Fontana, Elvis’ original drummer. He has received the great honor of being contracted by Elvis Presley Enterprises to sing at Graceland and Elvis Presley’s Heartbreak Hotel for seven consecutive years.
Not only is the charismatic MacDonald superb in performing as Elvis, this versatile performer has an extensive repertoire spanning from the 50's through today including contemporary country music tunes in addition to some of his own original music. MacDonald’s solid vocals have also earned him Broward County’s Florida Country Music Association’s (FCMA) Male Vocalist of the Year award and a feature track on The Deuces Wild compilation CD which received the FCMA Best CD of the Year award. With a new original country CD entitled Take Me Back, just released, MacDonald is looking forward to a busy year.
