Video is Jacqueline Feilich sheistheking.com/
Australian Elvis Tribute Artist who is the only female ETA invited by Elvis Presley Enterprise to perform at Gracelands. Apologies that the camera got a bit bouncy with the beat.
Posting this mainly for our Elvis Fans Spark Team as it felt like Elvis Week Down Under during Nov 24 to Nov 29...
First, the Elvis Cruise on the Royal Caribbean Rhapsody of the Sea departing from the Sydney Overseas Passenger Terminal at Circular Quay.
Bon Voyage to OZ and UK ETAs. That's Jacqueline in the middle.
Oz ETA Mark Anthony and his wife. Mark also wanted to say a special hello to ABISMITHY who saw Mark win the Ultimate ETA competition in Penticton, BC Canada.
My friends, the Elvettes made it in a few news releases with ETA John Elvis Collins:
Plus pics in the Sydney Morning Herald Photogallery:
While the lucky were cruising, Landlubber me caught a teddy bear, scarf, DVD and hugs from US ETA Donny Edwards, who had been touring in Australia with the Sweet Inspirations for a month since their own "Rock the Boat" cruise.
My own Elvis felt so lucky to hear Elvis stories from the original Sweet Inspirations Portia Griffin and Estelle Brown.
Then we caught up a few nights later with some of the cruise people at the ETA after-party. The cruise organiser (standing on far left) and the President of the Australasia Fan Club (front far left) pose with 2 UK ETAs, 2 Interstate ETAs, 4 Sydney ETAs. The club owner is wearing the bandana.
Several ETAs got a chance to relax and sing. So happy that Jacqueline takes a turn since I don't get to see her perform that often. The first time I saw Jacqueline, she single-handedly changed my mind that ETAs must be impersonators. Not true and that's why the professional ones are called Tribute Artists.
Allowing their fans to get up close and personal. This is ETA Rob Kingsley from Scotland.
Melbourne ETA Mark Andrew does a hilarious Austin Powers as well.
Entralling fans of all ages to "Oh, Behave"!
Sweet to see ETA John Elvis Collins being romantic with his wife.
Wives of other ETAs having just as much crazy fun as their husbands' fans.
OMG! UK ETA Pete Storm wrote "I LOVE YOU" and drew little hearts! Pete became 'European Masters Champion', 'Collingwood Grand Champion' and 'Images of the King' WORLD Champion all in 2011.
Left the party feeling like I was the King in the Elvis Teddy Bear Heaven.
