Thursdays Are For Trivia #FixThePlus

Answer: Elvis Presley was born on January 8, 1935 in Tupelo, Mississippi and was far from the world-famous star he was destined to become later. After graduating high school, Elvis took a truck driving job at Crown Electric working for only $40 per week. Knowing he wanted to become a singer, Elvis continued to pursue his career throughout years of rejection. At one point, Presley was even told to stick to driving a truck “because you’re never going to make it as a singer.” On July 18th, 1953, Truck driver Elvis Presley made his first ever recording when he paid $3.98 at the Memphis recording service, singing two songs, "My Happiness" and "That’s When Your Heartaches Begin." Presley would go on to become one of the most significant cultural icons of the 20th century.
