    The four-day celebration kicked off at Graceland, Elvis Presley's former home in Memphis. In addition to singing Happy Birthday to the King, officials cut a multi-tier birthday cake and read a proclamation of Elvis Presley Day.

    Elvis died at Graceland in 1977 when he was 42 years old; had he lived, he would be celebrating his 79th birthday.
