Mourners gather at Graceland for Lisa Marie Presley memorial


(Reuters) – Mourners were heading to Graceland on Sunday morning to pay their respects to singer Lisa Marie Presley at the Memphis, Tennessee, mansion she inherited from her father, rock legend Elvis Presley.

Presley died on January 12 at the age of 54. Earlier that day, she had been rushed to a Los Angeles-area hospital after going into cardiac arrest at her home. She is survived by her daughters, actress Riley Keough and 14-year-old twins Finley and Harper Lockwood.

Two days before his death, he had appeared with his mother, Priscilla Presley, at the Golden Globes in Beverly Hills, California, where actor Austin Butler won best actor for playing his father in the movie “Elvis.” Butler paid tribute to both women in his acceptance speech.

Presley began his music career in the 2000s with two albums, “To Whom It May Concern” and “Now What,” which reached the top 10 on the Billboard 200 album chart.

She was married and divorced four times, including to pop star Michael Jackson and actor Nicholas Cage.

The only child of one of the biggest stars in American music, she was 9 years old when Elvis Presley died of heart failure at age 42 in 1977 at Graceland. The mansion is now a popular tourist attraction.

Elvis Presley and other members of his family are buried in the Graceland Meditation Garden.

Lisa Marie Presley will also be buried there next to the grave of her son, Benjamin Keough, who died in 2020 at age 27, a death the Los Angeles County coroner ruled a suicide. In a recent essay, she described herself as “destroyed” by the death of her son.

Following the burial, a public memorial service is scheduled on Graceland’s front lawn at 9 am CST (1500 GMT), followed by a procession past the grave of Lisa Marie Presley.
