Though thousands of claimants to the throne strut their stuff across the country, only Heart of the King features Shawn Klush, winner of Elvis Presley Enterprises’ first-ever Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist award, and Young Elvis Cody Slaughter, who took home the prize last year. The spectacle of swiveling hips and shining rhinestones gains further authenticity by employing Presley’s legendary drummer DJ Fontana, original backup singers The Sweet Inspirations, and absolutely no robots or clones. As a live orchestra sets the melody, Klush and Slaughter evoke the King in all eras of his reign, paying honor and tribute to Elvis’s legacy.
