DONNY EDWARDS IS THE #1, 50'S, 60'S & 70'S ELVIS PERFORMER IN THE BIZ TODAY! A respected veteran performer, Donny is an official Las Vegas casino headliner act! During Elvis Week, in Memphis, Donny was given the honor of being the ONLY Elvis tribute artist to have been granted permission by Elvis Presley Enterprises, since 1977 to perform his show on the estate grounds of Graceland and at the same time, was commissioned an Honorary Tennessean by the Governor of TN. He is on Elvis Presley Enterprises, "PREFERRED" list. He was asked to appear on the David Letterman show but due to other commitments at the time, he was unable to accept. It was an honor to be asked, anyway! This past August, Donny accomplished his ULTIMATE goal. He was asked to perform his show on Elvis' stage and in Elvis' showroom at the former Hilton, now Westgate, in Las Vegas for the 40th anniversary memorial ~ the biggest honor of his life!
