Several message board mentions that BMG will present EPE with several new and upgraded sales awards in what appears to become an annual event. The reports mention that this is confirmed by BMG. This time the awards will be presented to EPE around the 70th Anniversary of Elvis' birth. All EPE will say is that they have 'something' to present but they do not yet know what.
According to the postings Elvis was given various awards bringing his total USA Album sales to 117.5 million at the last Presentation in January 2004. However, Mitch Bainwol, Chairman of the RIAA, stated that Elvis already had reached 120 million sales but that the extra awards for these were still being prepared.
