How do you rate Elvis as a balladeer?
The name Elvis symbolized popularly fast tempo rock and roll music his trademark. When Elvis shifted gears and started singing ballads, a lot of people just could not believe his versatility. He suddenly project a different angle of his talents because he sings almost all kinds of music with uncanny ability that differs him from the rest. I love his ballad singing because he do it with sincerity and honesty. If you listen to some of his best recorded ballads you can almost feel like he was serenading you. I believe he is one of the best balladeers of all times. :(y)
