An Orlando Elvis impersonator made a special visit to a Lake County nursing home near the 40th anniversary of the “King's” untimely death.
For the group of senior citizens at Benton House of Clermont, it’s the music that lives on despite the years.
Steve Greer, who has a British accent, is an Elvis impersonator who has the jumpsuits, the moves and the sound, just like Elvis.
“People tell me, ‘How do you sing with an American accent and talk with a British accent?’ I tell them I have no idea,” Greer said laughing.
“The King will never die, never,” a resident told WFTV.
The iconic singer was found dead at his home on Aug. 16, 1977.
