Elvis Week Recap - Candlelight Vigil and More

Elvis Week 2015 culminated in a very beautiful and touching Candlelight Vigil.

About 30,000 fans joined the Presley family at the 37th annual Candlelight Vigil. Fans filled Elvis Presley Boulevard and created beautiful shrines to remember the king. 

Memphis Jones chats with fans from around the world at the vigil in the video above. Watch the Candlelight Vigil here.

Earlier in the day, fans heard from Elvis' friends and fellow musicians, who all warmly remembered the king. Wink Martindale, former members of the Stamps Quartet, Joe Esposito and Shirley Dieu, and former Memphis Mayor Bill Morris, shared Elvis stories at Conversations on Elvis. 

Norbert Putnam and David Briggs gave candid interviews with Andy Childs about what it was like to record and tour with Elvis, before playing a few tunes they played with the king.

Check Elvis Presley's Graceland on Facebook for photos from the day's events, and look out for full photo galleries next week on Graceland.com.
