This afternoon Pear Tree Enterprises (https://peartreeenterprises.wordpress.com/) was proud to present the Learn and Listen series, “The Life and Music of Elvis Presley” featuring Ruben Castillo as Elvis Presley (http://www.soundsofelvis.webs.com/).
This my fourth time at this particular Arista Care facility, as the residents are awesome and keep requesting me. One in particular got excited when she saw me and said she remembered me from my “Newsies: History of the Newspaper Industry” presentation.
But today was extra special to present a half hour bio of Elvis and then have Ruben perform. One resident was so excited, she got up out of her seat and started dancing — without her walker!!
Elvis hits included: “Hurt” (my favorite because it was my grandmother’s favorite), “How Great Thou Art,” “I Can’t Help Falling in Love with You,” “It’s Now or Never,” and “The Impossible Dream.”
Special thanks to Patricia Castillo for doing the sound.
