Elvis net worth: Elvis was an American singer, musician and actor who had a net worth of $300 million dollars. Born Elvis Aaron Presley on January 8, 1935 in Tupelo, Mississippi, Elvis remains a significant cultural icon, even being dubbed as the King of Rock and Roll (or simply The King). His sexually overt persona caused a huge stir in the '50s when he began his journey to mega-stardom at Sun Records in Memphis, Tennessee with record producer Sam Phillips. Elvis' music is credited as having popularized rockabilly music. Elvis' first single in 1956, Heartbreak Hotel, was a #1 hit in the United States. He was soon a worldwide heartthrob and his subsequent string of hits were incorporated into many television movies, in which Elvis also starred. In 1959, Elvis was met with yet another flurry of controversy when he became enamored with a 14-year-old girl named Priscilla Ann (Wagner) Beaulieu, whom he later married. The couple had a daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, in 1968. Elvis is one of the most celebrated musicians of the 20th century, having had commercial success in many genres to include pop, blues and gospel. To date, he remains the best-selling solo artist in the history of recorded music. His first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show turned him into a national celebrity. In a subsequent appearance on Sullivan's show, the cameraman zoomed in on Elvis' face and, as if on cue, he smiled and 'snarled' his upper lip, a facial gesture that became one of his signatures. This gesture, along with his sexually charged gyrations during his performances, earned him an angry upheaval by crowds in Nashville, Tennessee and St. Louis, Missouri. Elvis died at the age of 42 in Memphis, Tennessee, after a long battle with prescription drug abuse.
