In 1969, Elvis Presley was one of the biggest names in music. Today, he is still remembered for being the King of Rock and Roll – a true pioneer in music history. Presley seemed to leave a large impression on anyone he met, and super-star Whitney Houston was no exception.
During this Access Hollywood interview, Houston recounted the time she met the King. She was only six years old in 1969, when her mother Cissy Houston, along with the group Sweet Inspirations sang for Presley. When Houston came with her mother to sit in backstage, she was in awe meeting Elvis.
“You actually don’t meet Elvis, you just look at Elvis“
Captivated at a young age, Houston said she could never forget that experience. Her mother and Presley were very close since she sang backup for many years. What an amazing experience!
