    Thank you for posting the links Smasher... Although I have never seen Jimmy Ellis... he does have a very nice voice and I think I probably would go see him if I had the chance. Thanks again, Dovey

    The problem with that is that he died about 10 years ago in a robbery.

    Thanks for the link Smasher... the song is beautiful.... I guess it is April fools day and I feel like one--- I have heard the name Jimmy Ellis but had never saw him before I looked at the video you posted. His voice is really beautiful... thanks for posting. Dovey

    This is the first i've heard him sing, i'd always heard that he sounded uncanningly like Elvis but i just don't hear it myself. True he does sound somewhat like the king but it's very easy to tell the difference.

    I read on his web site that he changed his name to get away from the Elvis connection but if he didn't want to be associated with Elvis then why sing so many of his songs?

    I think he did it because the audience wanted him to sing the songs.

    i think the good thing about Orion is that he sang alot of songs that Elvis would have been great at, had he recorded them.
    Secondly, most Elvis impersonators are not even good singers , at least this guy could sing.
