This Week in Rock ‘N Roll History: October 3, 1945
Before anybody knew what would become of him, a brave young man stepped onto the stage at the Mississippi-Alabama Fair and Dairy Show. On October 3, 1945 Elvis Presley, the king himself, performed his very first live show. He was all of ten years old singing “Old Shep” in the talent show that was also broadcast over WELO radio. At the end of the day he walked away with fifth place and a handful of ride tickets worth $5.00.
Just remember, all of the good artists had to start somewhere. No matter how rough it might seem, never give up on your dreams and always continue to Grow Your Passion!
