In a world where we seem to forget our favorites just as quickly as they show up, it can be difficult for a celebrity to remain in the public consciousness after they have passed away. Elvis Presley’s ability to stay culturally relevant for all of these years is truly incredible. He stands shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Marilyn Monroe and Tupac Shakur.

While it has been decades since the “King” was able to grace a stage with his magnetic presence, he has only continued to gain in stature as the year’s pass. Graceland has remained open to the general public in the decades since his passing. Priscilla Presley and Lisa Marie recently decided to have a candlelight vigil to mark the 40th anniversary of Elvis’ passing. There was one special guest who drew a great deal of attention.

While it has been decades since the “King” was able to grace a stage with his magnetic presence, he has only continued to gain in stature as the year’s pass. Graceland has remained open to the general public in the decades since his passing. Priscilla Presley and Lisa Marie recently decided to have a candlelight vigil to mark the 40th anniversary of Elvis’ passing. There was one special guest who drew a great deal of attention.

A young man was spotted at the vigil who could have been Elvis’ spitting image. Most would have assumed that he was a particularly talented Las Vegas impersonator. However, this young man is actually the grandson of the iconic singer. His name is Benjamin and he has begun to make a few appearances after living a relatively sheltered life.

Lisa Marie, Benjamin’s mother, did expose him to a fair amount of spotlight as a child with her headline-grabbing marriages. Her marriages (and subsequent divorces) with Michael Jackson and Nicolas Cage ensured that the world was well aware of this famous family even during Benjamin’s childhood. Since then, Benjamin has tried his absolute best to remain under the radar.

Some may recognize his more famous sister. Her name is Riley Keough and she is a well-known actress who has no problem enjoying the spotlight. To learn more about Benjamin and his famous family, be sure to check out this awesome video. Those who have longed to see more photos of this young man should definitely prepare to be wowed. He really does bear an uncanny resemblance to his grandfather.

Elvis aficionados, unite. It is time to share this amazing story with all of the Elvis lovers that we know. While most of us respect Benjamin’s decision to remain out of the limelight, we cannot resist trying to catch a glimpse of the young man who represents one of the final living connections to the Elvis Presley legacy. Please pass this story along as soon as possible!
