Viva Elvis The Album – From The Cirque Du Soleil Show 2010

“Viva Elvis The Album” is a tribute to the life and music of Elvis Presley. The Album is a 21st century celebration of Elvis and his music, featuring the voice of the king in a whole new context. Choosing the show’s musical pieces from Elvis’s impressive catalogue could have been a real puzzle. The show’s producers Vincent Paterson and Armand Thomas had the unique opportunity of listening to original track recordings by the King. They started out with a song list with over 100 songs at first. Then divided them into: A-must consider, B- maybe but lesser known songs, C- songs that they’d love to use but may not fit into the message of the show. All the songs feature the voice of Elvis himself, but with all new arrangements and background instruments. it is as if Elvis was re-recording the songs himself to fit into the current contemporary styles of today.
