’69 Elvis at our school concert


‘Elvis is singing at our schoool concert’ I told my husband, as I picked him up from work.

He raised an eyebrow, and then rolled his eyes to heaven.

‘He told me himself today’

‘Really?’.

‘Well, I swear on my life,  Elvis was in our living room today, and I asked him if he would be singing at the concert, and he said he was, so there!’

‘Impossible.  What’s the joke?’

‘Elvis, called to our house today to pick up his sister and told me he will be on stage at our concert tomorrow.  Honest to god’.

‘It’s true Dad’.  Charlie chimed in.

‘O..k..ay, well what is he singing then?’ Robert asked.

‘Well he is a character in the play, he plays the son, who wonders about Christmas around the world’, I said.

So yesterday, Elvis sang Jingle Bell Rock in our school winter concert!

There were no paparazzi there, no international media, no OB units from Sky News.  But Elvis sang, then he walked back with Fourth Class to watch a Christmas DVD until the school bell rang.
