It was 36 years ago tomorrow that Elvis Presley died. He has spawned legions of fans and people who try to imitate “the King,” with varying success.

Benjamin Dalske, 7, has been singing Elvis since he was four years old.

In June, he became the winner of the youth division at the Lake George Elvis Festival in Lake George, New York.

Here & Now co-host Jeremy Hobson traveled to Willow Grove, Penn., to meet Benjamin and his mom, and listen to little Elvis sing “Suspicious Minds.”
