A word from Lisa-Marie about the 30th Anniversary on her MySpace blog:

Quote:
Tuesday, August 21, 2007

WOW!

The last 3 days in Memphis have been incredible!
No one could ask for more. The turnout in the Unbreathable and relentless heat, The THOUSANDS in the shut down streets with candles throughout the night and into the next day. I was so overwhelmed and in AWE on the night of the 16th, that after 30 years he can still sell out a stadium with people from all over the world and even have to have a second show that same night. I was overwhelmed at the Unity and the Love that permeated the room that when it was time for me to speak after the video and performance, all that would come out was how overwhelmed I was. Lame Dork that I am I forgot to thank all of the people who helped make this almost impossible task happen in less than 2 weeks!!!
I must thank them now or I won't sleep!

First of all:
Mac Davis (who wrote the beautiful song!) I spoke to him the day before it went out and told him my plan. He was very appreciative and sweet about it.

Simon Fuller, Lian Prarie, Jesse Albert and 19 Management (for helping us with getting it up on iTunes in much less time than they usually do things and for all of the work that took!)

Steven Saftig and the team at iTunes (for making it happen).

David Foster (one phone call and he gave me the only 4 hours he had to sing and work on the track before he had to leave the country) and he did it for nothing.

His engineer Jochem van der Saag (he continued work on it once David left and took minimal pay).

Michael Lockwood (helped get the mix right to keep it Organic).

Tony Kaye (He is in the middle of shooting a movie in New Orleans but took this video on anyway and made it happen in a matter of days! We shot it on Saturday, in a few hours on his day off from the movie and Premiered it On WEDNESDAY 4 days later, he did it for nothing.) We both wanted more time on it but had to let it go because of deadlines.

I would also like to include his staff in this for working overtime and losing sleep.

Stig Edgran who did such an amazing job with "Elvis in Concert".

Paige Dorian (took over after everyone else told me all the reasons it
couldn't be done in less than 2 weeks and made it all happen).

Gary Hovey (Skeptical as you were, you got the clearances and made them happen regardless

RCA and Sony ATV (For giving them).

Gary Stiffelman (He did whatever he could to help me make it happen).

Billy Mann (helped with many great ideas, got inspired and helped in any way he could including coming up with the location idea in New Orleans to build the second Presley Place).

Joseph Llanes for your photographs and sleepless nights working on the project.

Hair and Make up, (Charged less because it is for charity).

GMA, ET, iTunes and AOL for having some faith. (All locked down on showing and promoting the song and video before ever even hearing it or seeing it!)




Thank you guys who are downloading as well. I am hearing IT IS NUMBER ONE ON ITUNES!!

When the building goes up, it is you who helped put it there!





Thank YOU for putting up with all of my Thank Yous!

ONE MORE THING:
There has been recent question about the repulsive and degrading "Viva Viagra" commercial as to WHO is responsible for okaying that and letting it out there. There is no way in hell we would ever authorize anything like that. I have found out WHO did and I will tell you. The rights to that song are owned by "Doc Pomus' Estate". The guy's name is Will Bratton. WILL BRATTON and WARNER CHAPEL TOGETHER are Who Licensed it. They are the ones who are profiting and who are responsible for this LIMP DICK OF A COMMERCIAL. Feel FREE to tell them how you feel about it if you want to wink wink.

Much Love
~LMP

Yes Wanda. You have strong personal reasons to say it. :wink: :P

I feel the same, because I'm proud of any single human being that is so sincere, just, considerate, loving, caring... And besides, she is Elvis/Priscilla daughter, so I am proud of them too, 'cause each has played their part in all this story of Love.

Welll... i wrote it on her forum so i'll just copy and paste it :D

Quote:
Well im Gina new here and i just wanted to tell Lisa what she and her music mean to me...
I was 13 when Lisa released her first album and my uncle bought it for me (he is a great fan of Lisa's father and bought me the album as a gift well he didnt know what to get).
anyways that week i was at home all week and i listend to the CD all the time since i couldnt get out of bed for a while and at that time i really did NOT want to get out of bed..
i was being bullied so badly at school and made fun of you name it and it happened to me...
i had moved to a new country months earlier left my friends behind..and my idol had just died (Johnny Cash) soo all was Sh*t and there i was listening to a woman who first and above all had an amazing voice, GREAT lyrics, a woman who was supposed to be the Princess to the world of music so ppl instantly thinks easy life....but no there was great pain and hurt and hope all at the same time
i felt as if i were there with her all the way because when lisa sang i believed every word she sang and that is the kind of songs and singing that truely saves people.
I know it saved me...I thought hey people have ups and sometimes very steep downs but she pulled herself out of it and there is hope, a light at the end of the tunnel and im gonna do this thing for better or for worse. So when i went back to school it was the same old stuff but this time i didnt blame myself i knew people are cruel and i also knew that all what they are doing to me will some day come back to them. when i would go home i would write all this pain down to get it off my chest and never read it back to myself i would lock it up somewhere. it felt as if a weight was lifted off my chest it was great that year was coming to an end when the wait was over my father was moving us the hell out of there and that was when i kissed a match and burnt all my pain away just like that...thanks to you Lisa! and today i just came back from my 3rd day of orientation at Georgetown University Qatar branch I was one of the 40 people they accepted worldwide and i believe in my heart of hearts that i owe it to you. I also owe you something else through you i discovered your father's music so to me you are not standing in anybody's shadow to me you have a shadow of your own. hold you head to the sky Lisa and Rock On cuz thats what you do best!!
And Once More thanks for Saving me


It might sound a bit childish but hey i was a baby at 13 very immature :lol:

Very great Gina! Brave girl! Meeting Brave Girl and it worked! Lisa is a fighter and she doesn't back down or give up-and you are like that I see. Good for you. Elvis used to say, "all you can do is try, and then try again, you never know, the next time it could work out fine. Just don't quit...cause quitting don't get you no where."
He taught my daughter that too, and she's not a quiter either...she's right out there slugging away and usually it works because she has the faith her "Uncle Elvis" gave her. Lisa I'm sure read your message and felt very proud and pleased inside her heart...which I am sure warmed because of your words written from your heart to hers. Good girl. wjh
