Elvis Presley, often known as the King of Rock and Roll, was only married once, to Priscilla Presley, with whom he had one and only one child, a daughter named Lisa Marie Presley. After four years of marriage, the couple finally got married in 1967 and stayed together until 1973.
In February of 1968, they welcomed a daughter named Lisa into the world in Memphis, Tennessee. Elvis Presley passed away in 1977, at the age of 42, leaving behind a little daughter who was just nine years old.
She eventually became a singer in her own right, much like him, and she said at one point that she had no idea that he had a very touching quotation. During her visit to the chat program “Lorraine” in the year 2022, Lisa disclosed the information as follows:
“As I was leaving the new Graceland exhibit, I noticed a phrase that was posted on one of the walls. It stated something along the lines of, “Becoming a parent is the finest thing that’s ever happened to me,” or anything to that effect. That was very neat for me since I had never encountered it before.”
A record of the family’s history may be found at the home they formerly owned in Memphis, which now serves as an archive. Elvis had images of his daughter in his wallet, along with a child’s snowy-white faux fur coat and a blue scarf with a handwritten note to her that she had no idea existed. Both of these items were worn by her.
The moment she laid eyes on that specific cloth, she exclaimed, “My God, I’ve never seen it before.” “I really want it. Do you mind if I have it? I’m going to have it framed, “said Lisa. She and Elvis have a wonderful father-and-daughter bond during their time together.
He began singing her lullabies at an extremely early hour in the morning and even gave her a little performance as he did so. During an interview with Diane Sawyer in January 2009, Lisa reminisced about their past experiences as follows:
“In the middle of the night, he would constantly wake me up to sing, and then he would climb on the table and sing. The only thing I remember about him is that he was a really interesting father to me.”
During one of her appearances on “The Talk,” Lisa said that despite the passage of many decades after her father’s passing, she was able to recall the talks that she and her father used to have.
She divulged the fact that they “spent a lot of time together in the top portion of Graceland.” This was the way in which they became closer as father and kid. Lisa said that Elvis was the complete opposite of strict as a dad when she was questioned about it.
“He did not have the least bit of discipline.”
The singer-songwriter said that when she was a child, she was well aware that she could get away with mischief since her father would spend the whole day sleeping and would wake up in the evening.
In 2003, Lisa said that she and her father had a good relationship and characterized her father as “quite affectionate, very lovely.” When questioned whether she had ever sung with him, she said that it was more of her singing for Elvis as he would place her on the table to sing. She went on to say that she never sang with him.
Lisa had a hard time wrapping her head around the fact that her father was no longer alive when the news of his passing became public. It took her some time to figure out what was going on, but eventually, she did:
“I was completely taken aback by a large number of people, estimated to be in the hundreds of thousands or more. They were displaying some really aggressive behaviors right in front of me. There were thousands of people looking at his corpse, and they were coming into my home.”
The famous actor from Hollywood recalls “seeing them all and being so perplexed.” Lisa said that she was unable to go through her own “grieving” process. It was almost a month later that she went camping and finally lost it and broke down in tears.
Lisa said, many years later, that her father’s music had been “ingrained” in her from a very early age on. Because she had heard him sing so often, she had no doubt that he was very passionate about music. She did say, however, that despite the fact that she was a great lover of his music, she never attempted to make her songs sound like his.
Lisa finished recording her most recent album at Sun Studio in Graceland. She said that she went back to her hometown as much as she could whenever she had the opportunity. The singer known for “Lights Out” also visited there with her family and friends and had meals there. One evening, she showed the children the neighborhood by driving them about in what she called a “golf cart.”
Lisa passed away on January 12, 2023, in the city of Los Angeles, in the state of California. She has reached the age of 54. The terrible news was broken to her by her mother, who said, “It is with a sad heart that I must give the dreadful news that my lovely daughter Lisa Marie has left us.”
In addition, Remini disclosed the fact that contrary to popular belief, the dark-haired beauty did not have an “easy” existence. “May she rest in peace, knowing that she is now with her son and her father,” or “May she rest in peace?” At the conclusion of the post, she said that she was praying for Priscilla and all of her grandchildren.
Lisa had been married three other times at that point. She initially tied the knot with Danny Keogh, and then went on to marry Michael Jackson, Nicholas Cage, and Michael Lockwood in that order. She gave birth to four kids: a male called Benjamin, who passed away in July of 2020, and three girls named Riley, Finley, and Harper.
