Elvis Is Still In The Building
A rambling old building just off of Nashville’s Music Row housed the corporate headquarters and recording studios of RCA in the 1950s. It was in a small studio on the first floor of that building that Elvis Presley recorded his breakthrough 1956 single, Heartbreak Hotel.
After RCA moved to other quarters, the building became a TV production facility, housing studios which were used primarily to produce music-related programs. An audio booth and studio lighting panel occupied the space in which Elvis recorded.

Studio crew members swore that every time Elvis’ name was mentioned during a show production, something strange would happen: a light would blow out, a ladder would fall, some unexplained noise would suddenly be heard through the sound system.

Here is a link to a strange picture, I don't if it's real

Another story:

One of the best-known Elvis ghost stories concerns an apparition that appeared to an elderly Tenessee farmer who was an acquaintance of Elvis'.On August 16, 1977 before he learned of his friend's passing, the farmer was tending to a wonded calf when he saw Elvis walking towards him surrounded by what appeared to be slight blue fog.Elvis smiled and told his acquaintance that he was going away for a while. At that moment, the farmer's wife ran out of their house shouting that she had just heard about Elvis's death on the radio. The farmer turned around only to find that Elvis had vanished.Elvis' ghost has since been sighted many times at Graceland, his mansion in Memphis, TN. Visitors to the grounds have sighted an apparition near poolside, in the bath house, and appropriately, at the meditation gardeb close to his grave.

Some visitors have even reported seeing a spectral Elvis staring out at them from behind the windows.Sightings of a phantom limo at the gates of Graceland are reported from time to time. Legend has it that Elvis can be seen inside, behind the darkness glass. For some reason this ghostly limo seems to manifest mostly atound 2:30 AM.

That was often the time he'd go out and/or return from whatever he might have gone to do. He liked that time of night/morning as it was quieter than anyother time and he liked the stars he could see during those hours-I remember him spending a long, long time explaining how the stars "rotated" around the earth as it turned and which ones could be seen from his angle and from mine on the west coast-mine would be different and he had to tell me all a bout which ones and where to look etc: and what time they'd be over my house and then come into view at his house etc:. It was interesting, and he was very into it and I loved that voice when he was "into" whatever it was...he'd talk softly, more slowly and sometimes dropped into sounding younger and more southern. And the sincerity of his intent, I liked that. wjh

I'm agree


This a story I found on the net :


I have not told very many people this story, for obvious reasons, and
I really do not believe in ghost. The following is the truth and is
told as I remember it.

Back in the late 70's, after Elvis had died, I was in Memphis to
attend an amateur radio operators convention. The convention was
held at the fair grounds in Memphis. I arrived at the convention
about ten PM on the night prior to the first day of the hamfest.


My plans were to park near the coliseum, where the convention was
to be held, and to spend the night in the van which I had driven.
I found a place to park near the building. After parking, I got
out and took a walk for exercise. There were some other people
around preparing for the next days event. After about an hour and a half, I went back to my van to go to bed. There were street lights
on outside, my bunk was lumpy, and I was very uncomfortable. After
trying to go to sleep for about an hour, I knew it was going to be
a long night.


Laying there wide awake, I began to hear singing. No music, muffled,
just a solitary male voice. At first, I thought the sound was a radio
from a near-bye car, but the singing continued on. The voice was
singing "Amazing Grace". Since I could not sleep anyway, I got up and opened the van door and got out. After getting out, I could tell
the sound was coming from inside the coliseum. My first thought
was that someone was inside testing the PA system for the next day.


The singing continued, a single voice singing "Amazing Grace". As
I walked toward the building the sound became louder. I walked up
to an entrance door, but from that door I could not see into the
arena area of the coliseum. As I listened to the singing it seemed
to become louder and clearer. It sounded beautiful, it sounded like
Elvis Presley. I decided to walk around the corner of the building
to another door to see if I could get a look inside, but no luck.
The singing continued, about 5 minutes had gone by since it had
started.


I went on around the building trying to get a look inside. After
reaching the front of the building. I had a clear view into the
arena area, I could see no one. The singing of "Amazing Grace"
continued. I started back to my van and then the singing stopped.


After a restless night of fitful sleep, I got up early to attend
the hamfest. What I had heard the night before had not really
bothered me. But, after entering the arena, the first announcement
that was made on the PA system that was set up, gave me a feeling
that is hard to describe. The PA system was so weak and the sound
quality was so poor, I realized there was no way the beautiful,
rich, deep sound that I had heard the night before could have come
from that PA system.


What did I hear that night? I do not know. But, I was in Memphis
at the fairgrounds that Elvis loved and I heard the most beautiful
singing of " Amazing Grace" that I will ever hear[/quote]

All these stories are amazing, but the one that resonated in me is the last one, what appeared to be Elvis' voice singing one of his favorite gospels (and mine too), "Amazing Grace".

We may have a reasonable doubt on some of this episodes, but I like this one as it hits closer to what I imagine Elvis' ways trying to help someone by his presence, maybe trying to bring in faith or hope. (I would like El'vis could tell us! :roll: )

Me too!

And I agree with what Amanda said here:

Perhaps a spiritual seed was planted in the person who was privileged to heard Elvis' beautiful voice sing such a beautiful spiritual song.

Most likely that experience changed the man's life forever. Thanks for posting it.
