100% of profit to go to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

Andy Wood, Top Elvis Tribute Artist from the United Kingdom

 

As a huge Elvis fan first and foremost, Andy Wood finds that one of the many qualities that endears him to Elvis was his great generosity and charitable nature. Of the many, many charities he supported, one of his favorites was St Jude Children’s Hospital and Research Center ��" the amazing brainchild of the late great Danny Thomas.

St Jude is located in the heart of Elvis’ beloved hometown, Memphis and to this day, continues to work its magic. Elvis may not be here to continue his amazing charity work but his legacy and impact on his huge fan base is stronger than ever. In some small way, if we ��" his fans ��" can help to carry on giving to this wonderful charity all these years after he sadly left us ��" then we can safely say we have done our job.

 

Taylor Rodriguez, Virginia’s Own Rising Star

 

Taylor Rodriguez has many attributes; he is kind, thoughtful, loving, and very talented. As an Elvis Presley Tribute Artist, the son of Hector and Donna Rodriguez, he often performs at his parents restaurant, El Cazador in Bedford, Virginia. He is a sophomore at Jefferson Forest High School. At the age of 16, he has already performed for many organizations, rescue squads, adult care centers, homes for the disabled, various charity events and at Graceland.

If you have the pleasure of watching him perform, you’ll witness him effortlessly moving to the audience, capturing the essence of Elvis Presley as he charms many adoring fans. His confidence and ease contradict his young age.

His aunt, Diane Morcom loved Elvis all her life. When Taylor was a little boy he would often stay with his aunt and she would play Elvis music for hours. About 6 to 7 years ago he took a serious interest in learning all the music and moves that made Elvis Presley the legend that he is. Diane would go to all of his shows to cheer him on. She was his biggest fan. In June 2011, she passed away suddenly. Taylor, was one of many deeply impacted by her death. He truly lost his biggest fan. He has always been driven to be the best at this role that he can possibly be. Honoring the memory of his aunt Di has made even more committed to his dream.
