Elvis Presley and Hawaii have a lot in common. The first record album I ever bought was Blue Hawaii… songs from the movie filmed on Kauai and Oahu.
Few people know that Elvis did a free concert at Block Arena on the Pearl Harbor Navy Base to raise funds for the Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor.
Then there is the "Aloha From Hawaii" concert, the Worlds First Satellite TV Concert on January 14, 1973.
This statue of Elvis stands outside the Blazedale Center in Honolulu where the event took place. Everyday people place fresh flower leis on the statue.
These pictures were taken by my fellow photographer Karen Renard.
Why let the truth stand in the way of a good fish story?
