Elvis Presley: #Collecting The King

Elvis Presley: Collecting The King

Adore him or not, Elvis' music numbers are astonishing. Industry experts estimate that he has sold more than one billion record units worldwide, more than anyone in history. He has had 149 songs on the Billboards' Hot 100 Pop Chart, of which 18 went to number one. Of course, he also had country western, rhythm & blues, and gospel records as well. Elvis also starred in 31 feature films and two concert documentary films.

In October 2005, Variety Magazine inducted him in their top ten entertainment icons of the twentieth century, along with the Beatles, Marilyn Monroe, Lucille Ball, Marlon Brando, Humphrey Bogart, Louis Armstrong, Charlie Chaplin, James Dean, and Mickey Mouse.
