GALLIPOLIS — Break out your blue suede shoes because Elvis, as presented by tribute artist Eric Erickson, will be in the building Aug. 30 for a show at 3 p.m. at the historic Ariel Theatre in downtown Gallipolis.
Admission is free and seating is first come, first serve.
As it was with Elvis, gospel music is first and foremost for Erickson, who got his start in church the way Elvis did. Erickson has received many tributes and accolades for his Elvis tribute, including being featured in the award-winning video “Almost Elvis” and being invited to sing at Graceland during Elvis week in Memphis.
He has also been a finalist in the “Super Bowl” of Elvis Tribute Artist’s contests and he has performed in this country and Canada.
Erickson gives thanks to God for the gift of singing and has made a ministry of sharing his music with others.
