Estelle Brown - Elvis’ Backup Singer

Estelle Brown was formerly with ‘the Sweet Inspirations’, a quartet of female gospel singers backing many legends over the years. Brown and the Sweet Inspirations’ lives changed forever in 1969 when they received a call from Presley to be a part of his touring band. Brown and The Sweets toured with Elvis until his untimely death in 1977 and worked with Elvis on some of his most iconic Elvis recordings and concerts, including the “Aloha From Hawaii” concert.

Sam Thompson - Elvis’ Bodyguard

Sam Thompson first met Elvis in November 1972. At the time Elvis, was dating Sam's sister, Linda Thompson. As an officer with the Shelby County Sheriff's Department, Elvis and Sam became fast friends. Sam traveled with Elvis on road tours from 1972 until 1976. In July 1976, Sam went to work full time for Elvis, as his personal bodyguard and tour advance man. Sam was present at the recording sessions of eight albums and accompanied Elvis on 10 separate road tours, including 130 concert and stage performances.
