Elvis sings heartbreaking version of classic – 6 weeks later, he dies

In 1977, Elvis Presley died and the entire world came together to mourn the King of Rock.  The talented musician and singer had touched the whole world with his incredible voice and inimitable charisma.

Today, almost 40 years later, his sould continues to live on through his music and the special moments he’d shared with us.

One such moment took place just six weeks before his death.

It occurs in Rapid City, South Dakota, USA. Due to his failing health, doctors tried to dissuade the rock legend from further performances, and urged him to cancel all gigs. But as could be expected, Elvis with his “the show must go on” attitude, squarely refused. 

During this performance, one can see that his health is not what it once was. The doctors were right. But hisvoice and spirit are just as powerful as they have always been.

Have a listen and enjoy this powerful version of “Unchained Melody”. A version that truly shows why Elvis was completely unique.
