“Elvis Ignited: The Rise of an Icon in Florida”

Saturday, Feb. 3, 11 a.m.

In 1956, Elvis Presley played more live shows in Florida than any other state. In the 15 months following, Presley visited four more times rising from a little-known musician to the King. Kealing, an Edward R. Murrow and fourtime Emmy award winning broadcast journalist, unfolds the story of Florida’s role in Presley’s rise to fame.
