About Me

I write this page in humbleness, For I stand in awe of God and His Blessings upon me. Many years ago, I was blessed with a voice and a personality that would benefit me in my walk through life....... I have had the privilege of meeting hundreds of thousands of people throughout my life and my career and I owe it to the King of Rock & Roll and the King of Kings.

The name"Elvis Aaron Presley" brings to everyone a picture of a man placed on this earth, born in lower class surroundings, part of a twin combination, in which one was taken at birth , while the other lived. Elvis was blessed from the day of his inception and upon his birth, brought to this world a light which shone to the heavens, in thanks to God Almighty for a miracle of miracles.

I have lived on the name of Elvis for over 40 years as an entertainer doing tribute to the man known as the King of Rock & Roll. No other man has ever accomplished the fame and undying memories as is given to Elvis by the fans and tribute artists of today.


When, I first started out doing music, it was in a country band as a drummer and backup singer. After a few directional happenings, I found myself in the front of the band as the lead singer. We became known as "William Maurice and The Townlines."

During the early years of my career, I had done a few Elvis songs, but it wasn't until I was nearing the completion of my studies, that I was given the blessings of being able to do a full show on Elvis, called "Forever Elvis" . Well, needless to say, this was the beginning of a new and exciting walk in music.

Over the years I have had the privilege of performing with many of Elvis' people, such as D.J. Fontana, J.D. Sumner and the Stamps, Kathy Westmoreland, The Jordanaires, Charlie Hodge, The Sweet Inspirations, and many more Great and Wonderful entertainers...

I have come to the realization that Elvis was a Christian man and have met many a person who had advised or guided Elvis to the Lord, including a wonderful woman named Mary Ann Thornton,

I am not preaching nor do I want to come across as a Holier than Thou person, I am stating that Elvis did have a personal relationship with God at the time of his death. I must take this time to thank Elvis for allowing me the privilege to honor his name and to become part of an ever growing array of Tribute Artists from around the world who keep his memory alive for all the millions and millions of fans.

Doing the Tribute Shows for all these years has brought me to the 4 corners of the world and if it wasn't for the Blessings of God and the name of Elvis, I probably would have never even stepped foot outside my own country "Canada."

To all the fans and to all those who personally knew Elvis, I hope that you enjoyed this website and in total respect to all of you, I can only say...Thank You and God Bless!!!

In His Spirit Lives............. William Maurice
