Lisa Marie was born at Baptist Memorial Hospital in Memphis, Tenn., exactly nine months after her parents’ wedding. She lived at Graceland, Elvis’ Memphis estate, until her parents separated in 1972.

Following their separation and subsequent divorce, she divided her time between living at Graceland with her father and in California with her mother.

This arrangement continued until her father died on August 16, 1977, after which she lived exclusively in Beverly Hills.

When her father died, Lisa became joint-heir to his estate with her grandfather Vernon Presley, and her great grandmother Minnie Mae Presley.

] Following the deaths of Vernon in 1979 and Minnie Mae in 1980, Lisa became the sole heir and inherited Graceland. On Feb. 1, 1993, her 25th birthday, she inherited that estate, which had grown at that time to an estimated $100 million.

On April 8, 2003, Presley released her debut album, To Whom It May Concern. It reached #5 on the Billboard 200 albums chart and was certified gold in June 2003. Presley wrote all the lyrics (except “The Road Between”, which was co-written with Gus Black) and co-wrote some of the melodies.

Her second album, Now What, debuted number 9 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. It was certified gold in November 2005. Presley co-wrote 10 songs and recorded covers of Don Henley’s “Dirty Laundry.”

In August 2007 the single “In the Ghetto” was released. Elvis Presley originally released the single in 1969. In the new version, Lisa “duets” with her father. The video, simultaneously released with the single, reached #1 on the iTunes sales and #16 on Billboard’s Bubbling Under Hot 100 singles chart.

The song was recorded to commemorate the thirtieth anniversary of her father’s death.
Lisa Marie filmed the video ‘In the Ghetto’, featuring her late father Elvis, in hurricane-ravaged New Orleans. All proceeds from the video and single benefit a new Presley Place transitional housing campus there. “I wanted to use this for something good,” Lisa Marie told Spinner of the posthumous duet. Directed by Tony Kaye. Check out this gallery of Lisa Marie pictures:
