Lisa Marie Presley went to Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee, this past week to celebrate her birthday. She was born February 1, 1968, to Elvis and Priscilla, and she was immediately a daddy’s girl. Elvis doted on his new daughter, and they enjoyed a close bond. It has even been celebrated in both his music and her own musical career.
Sadly, Elvis passed away when she was only a little girl; she was only 9 years old. Lisa Marie has said in the past that her mentality after her father’s death was rather tortured. She became very lonely and full of deep questions about life that she found no immediate answers to, such as the answer to what life and death really are. Now 44, Lisa Marie is all grown up and paying tribute to her beloved dad.
One of the reasons Lisa Marie chose to celebrate her birthday in Graceland this year was to open a new special exhibit at the former family home of Elvis, Priscilla, and Lisa Marie that now serves as a museum. This new grand exhibit is called "Elvis... Through His Daughter's Eyes." The special exhibit includes her first ever record player and her baby shoes.
Another father-daughter related exhibit that’s on display at Graceland? A private jet that belonged to Elvis that he named Lisa Marie after his adored daughter.
A video of Lisa Marie’s recent Graceland trip has been added to the free and official Elvis Mobile iPhone App.
