The biggest names in music from across all genres came together to honor Elvis Presley. The king of rock and roll was paid tribute by a range of legendary performers with the king of country Blake Shelton hosting the whole show. Here we see the beginning performance where Elvis himself melds into the NBC All-Star Tribute, starting with “If I Can Dream.”
All of Elvis’ most popular tracks were covered in the 2018 mashup by artists including but not limited to Shawn Mendes, Keith Urban, Post Malone, John Fogerty, Ed Sheeran, Jennifer Lopez, John Legend, Mac Davis, Carrie Underwood, and Josh Groban. The night also hosted stunning collaborations resulting in some rather unique renditions.
The Elvis tribute performance of “If I Can Dream” in honor of his birthday was a smashing success. The medley brought together vocal talent that would have likely had little to no chance of ever heard on the same stage. Elvis Presley still inspires to this day, with this incredible showing paying homage in the grandest of ways.
