I am with you, John. Elvis is king. He was the king of singers, not just of Rock 'n' Roll.

Connie Francis is Queen. The pity is, they never sang a duet. The world really lost out there.

Did you take a photo of where you saw Elvis standing?

Elvis is king because his singing never abused his voice; because in his songs, he used a wide healthy range of harmonious vocal sound. His Christian hymns, more than his Rock songs, reveal his voice had depths that no other Rock singer has demonstrated, so far. I find his Christian hymns more spiritual than Church Choir renditions.

Church Choir singing is all about the heights of exquisite aesthetics to which religious belief can be taken, whereas hymns sung by Elvis are expressions of deep belief in eternal truths.

You're an onstage Actor and a Director, John! Me, too, a few times. For a class assignment many years ago, we had to 'remake' any of Shakespeare's plays. I did "A Midsummer Night's Dream, a sequel."

The professor said mine is funnier than Shakespeare's. I could send you a free copy. If you do not agree with the professor, I will donate $20.00 in your name to your hometown's Animal Humane Society. Fair enough?
