Elvis Presley lives! One teen’s ‘Blue Christmas’ cover proves the country and rock n’ roll legend is still alive — inside of him, at least. Listen for yourself and decide if all other Presley impersonators should just retire right now.
David Thibault was recorded singing this song at radio station CKOI in Quebec. It’s a French language Top 40 station, but they still recognize greatness when they see it, and they still recognize the King. It’s not even clear if the teen speaks English, but he sure speaks Elvis.
A few doubters wonder if the video is a fake, but Thibault’s slip on guitar coincides with a muff on the mic, proving the performance is real. It’s not clear who provided the “Ooh, ooh, ooh” backing vocals, but it’s safe to assume it’s the deejay.
The ‘Blue Christmas’ cover went live on Monday (Dec. 9), and has amassed over 2.5 million views since.
