Faces of the King – #1 Elvis Tribute
Elvis Presley lives on as one of America’s biggest musical legends. Now, Faces of the King by Shawn Klush and Cody Slaughter shows you what it would be like if Presley himself returned to the stage to perform a show of all his career highlights.
Born and raised in the small coal-mining town of Pittston, Pennsylvania, Shawn Klush’s love for music led him to begin imitating his musical idol, Elvis Presley. He performed in the famous Poconos region followed by a tour of Canada where he entered and won the $5,000.00 prize in the “Worldwide Elvis Competition” in Montreal. This caught the attention of the award winning Las Vegas show, “Legends in Concert” where for many years he starred as ‘Elvis’ in their Myrtle Beach, Las Vegas, Branson and Atlantic City show rooms. Each January he stars in the “Elvis Birthday Tribute Tour”, an extravaganza with Elvis’ own musicians, singers, and friends, in major venues in multiple cities.
Klush was chosen by Graceland as the winner of Elvis Presley Enterprises first ever Ultimate Tribute Artist Contest in Memphis, Tennessee, and is the only Elvis tribute artist officially endorsed and approved by Elvis Presley Enterprises.
Cody Ray Slaughter is hailed as one of the most talented, young Actors, Singer and Elvis Tribute Artist in the country. Born and raised in Harrison, Arkansas, gateway to the beautiful Ozark Mountains, Cody Slaughter began entertaining at the young age of 13. A true Southern boy, Cody’s true passion for Elvis’ music and memory has directed his career path.
Cody has performed all across the country as “Elvis” in the traveling production of the Tony Award-winning sensation “Million Dollar Quartet” and was nominated as best featured actor for his role. Slaughter has performed in many theaters in Branson, MO, such as Tony Roi’s Elvis Experience, Legends In Concert, 50’s At The Hop and The Liverpool Legends as well as in Pigeon Forge, TN where Cody was the featured entertainer at The Tennessee Shindig for over a year at the young age of 17. Cody also appeared on MTV’s “My Super Sweet 16” and “Late Night with David Letterman” Slaughter has performed at special events, corporate functions, and entertainment venues throughout the United States, Canada and the UK. His uncanny portrayal of Elvis Presley exhibits his amazing love for who he calls, “the greatest entertainer of all time”.
