Lisa Marie Presley Biography
Source: Lisa Presley
Lisa Marie Presley, the only child of Elvis Presley and Priscilla Beaulieu Presley, has always had music in her blood. Growing up as the daughter of the original "King of Rock and Roll", Lisa early on developed an understanding and appreciation for music of all types. That affinity continues today, as she prepares to release her self written debut album on Capitol Records.
Lisa's life and upbringing have been unique to say the least. Born on February 1, 1968, Lisa split her childhood, living in Los Angeles with her mother and at Graceland with her father, after her parents divorced in 1973. Upon the universally mourned death of her iconic father, Lisa became sole heir of the legendary Graceland and its attendant activities. She currently serves as the Chairman of the board for Elvis Presley Enterprises, which works to preserve the name, image and likeness of Elvis Presley.
In 1997, at the tribute concert marking the 20th anniversary of Elvis' death, Lisa roused the crowd by presenting a duet video of herself singing, "Don't Cry Daddy" with her father. David Foster produced Lisa's performance and new instrumentation to complement Elvis' original vocal. The result was stunning.
Lisa while nurturing her budding music career, has also had some time to have some fun in the last few years. She appeared on the April 1996 cover of Vogue, in a much discussed shot highlighting her resemblance to her famous father. Lisa did a campaign for her friend, the late Gianni Versace ...as well as one for Gap Jeans. She's also appeared in many noted coffee table tomes - one for friend, talented makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin, where he transformed Lisa into Marilyn Monroe, as well as one for prestige jeweler Cartier of which she graced the cover.
Lisa has two children, Danielle and Benjamin, with first husband, Danny Keough whom she divorced in 1994 after six years.
