Susan Anton remembers the night she met Elvis Presley.

In the 1970s, the 20-something Anton — starring through tonight in the touring All Shook Up at the Palace Theatre — was singing in a hotel show in Las Vegas.

She attended a Tom Jones concert one night when Presley joined Jones for the finale.

Afterward, Anton was invited to accompany Presley to his penthouse apartment in the Las Vegas Hilton.

"He was so sweet," she said. "That’s what struck me the most."
Presley then asked Anton to enter his bedroom.

"I thought: ‘Oh, my God. The big superstar is going to make the play for the big, naive girl,’ " she recalled.

He didn’t make a pass, though. Instead, he read a favorite passage from the best-selling The Prophet by Khalil Gibran.

"He signed it, gave it to me and wished me a good life," she said.
In retrospect, Anton views Presley as a prisoner of his fame.

"That, and his roots in gospel music and the church, fueled his desire to seek out more knowledge about the world and self-realization."

— Michael Grossberg

Probably, some aspect in that lady called Elvis' attention and his desire to transmite her something of value. Sweet loving soul! Image

Thank you, Maia.
