Like Snowflakes No Two Tributes Are The Same!!! It Doesn't Matter The Design, Only It's Purpose. It Takes More Than One To Cover The Earth With Beauty!
Are you a Tribute Artist or a fan of Tributes Artists?
Well actually I am both a fan and a Tribute Artist. I began performing with an International ETA Champ, Robert Glass and I did Elvis' Songs in Sign Language as he sang them, which was my Tribute - so though I didn't wear black leather most of the time or sideburns I was doing everything other ETA's do but just with my hands. I just use someone else's voice. I don't just use my hands but as much feeling and movement in the songs and often more than the other ETA's to get the sound and meaning displayed more visually - it isn't a stand still job. My Best Friend, Lisa and I also do back up routines to some of the songs and mingle with the crowd as The Elvis Diva Chick Twins. I have also helped with other ETA's in any way that I can taking pictures, inspiring, promoting, writing, managing - I love being a support person as much as I do a performer. My frist year at Elvis Week was in 2003 which was also my first time on the stage at the tent. I have been blessed to perform there several times since.
Robert Glass but then I am a little prejudiced, I hope you enjoy his music on my playlist. I think each ETA has their own quality that brings something special to a tribute. I have several good and special friends that are ETA's so it is safest to stay with the one that brung you to the dance. LOL I hope to add some of his videos soon.
Anyone that are friends with on here or know Jerry Russell from Sheffield, AL that has Elvis Day - please keep him and his wife Lisa in your prayers - Jerry is facing a road of chemo and radiation - they appreciate everyone's prayers and said that is what is helping them get thru this. They don't have regular access to the internet but can check from time to time if anyone wants to leave messages on his page here or emails. They are the sweetest couple and would do anything for anyone.
Got your message and decided to drop in myself. Did a little "house keeping" on my page and added some music. Thanks for adding the videos from EW'10. You are a jewel! Have a Great rest of the week!
My Love to You,
