On August 16, 1977 Elvis Presley “left the building” for good. Coincidentally on that fateful day Robert Washington celebrated his own 19th birthday. Fast forward nearly 40 years later and Robert Washington has become one of the world’s greatest Elvis impersonators. Some would say THE best. Others would vehemently disagree. Robert Washington took 2nd place three times in the annual Images of Elvis World Championships held each August in Memphis. And three times a slew of fans cried foul when he was not crowned King. But after several cracks in the glass ceiling, Robert Washington made history by becoming the first African American to be crowned World Champion Elvis Impersonator.

See his inspiring story chronicled in the film Almost Elvis, then see him LIVE IN CONCERT.
