New Elvis Presley Fan-Voted Compilation To Be Released
On July 31st, Legacy Recordings will be releasing an album called "I Am An Elvis Fan". Back in May, they launched the I Am An Elvis Fan campaign in conjunction with Elvis Presley Enterprises calling for fans to cast a vote to help compile the first-ever U.S fan-voted album by Elvis Presley. 250,000 votes were cast and the top-voted songs will comprise this new 21 song collection that will be available digitally and physically via RCA/Legacy. The campaign also invited fans to upload a photo of themselves to be used in an Elvis photo mosaic created by EPE licensee Fan Mosaics. The mosaic created from nearly 8,000 uploaded photos will be used for both the I AM AN ELVIS FAN album cover and a limited edition poster. The release leads into "Elvis Week", a celebration to be held August 10-17 in Memphis to commemorate the 35th anniversary of Presley's passing. Participants were asked to cast their votes at for their top three songs by Presley in seven musical genres provided by Legacy: 50s, 60s, Country, Movies, Love Songs, Gospel, and In Concert. Facebook and Twitter users were provided with links to share and spread the experience.
