    He sang his way into our heart I'm too young to have seen this when it was first televised but I sure have enjoyed seeing the replays!

    Thank you for the remembrance Vissie - those televised shows on Ed Sullivan were a turning point for Elvis to finally be accepted by the public as a true artist.
