RCA/Legacy RecordingsTonight's concert commemorating the 35th anniversary of Elvis Presley's death will feature a very special tribute from the rock icon's daughter, Lisa Marie. The 44-year-old singer tells The Hollywood Reporter that a new video of her singing a song by her late dad will be given its premiere screening during the show, which takes place at the FedExForum in Memphis, Tennessee.
Lisa Marie won't reveal which tune she recorded, but says it was produced by T Bone Burnett, who also was at the helm of her recently released third album, Storm and Grace.
"[T Bone] found this sweet, amazing song off [Elvis'] first record, and we went into the studio and harmonized a little bit," she explains. "For me, it was important this year to do something where it wasn't about me singing or a duet. I just wanted it to be something really sweet."
About the clip that will accompany the tune, Lisa Marie says, "It's very intimate. It was important for me to show that he's carrying on through me and my children."
The Elvis 35th Anniversary Concert also will feature an appearance by Lisa Marie's mother, Priscilla, and live performances by a wide variety of musicians associated with Elvis, including longtime Presley drummer DJ Fontana and TCB Band members James Burton and Glen Hardin.
Meanwhile, Graceland hosted its annual candlelight vigil on Wednesday night -- the eve of the anniversary of Elvis' passing -- and Lisa Marie and Priscilla made their first-ever joint appearance at the event. According to The Commercial Appeal, Lisa Marie briefly addressed the crowd, declaring, "I've always avoided this because I felt it would be too emotional."
The two women also are scheduled to appear on Entertainment Tonight on Thursday evening, and the following day both are slated to participate in a panel discussion at Graceland that focuses on the staging of Elvis' touring productions.
