Here is the press release for a new pre-paid Visa Card featuring Elvis' image.
Johnny Cash (born J.R. Cash, February 26, 1932 – September 12, 2003) was an influential American country and rock music singer and songwriter. Cash was the husband of country singer and songwriter June Carter Cash.
Cash was known for his deep and distinctive voice, the boom-chick-a-boom or "freight train" sound of his Tennessee Three backing band, and his dark clothing and demeanor, which earned him the nickname "The Man in Black." He started all his concerts with the simple introduction "Hello, I'm Johnny Cash.” Cash’s signature songs include "I Walk the Line", "Folsom Prison Blues", "Ring of Fire”, and "Man In Black". He has sold over 50 million albums in his nearly 50-year career.
Elvis Presley is also another artist being recognized with these new MasterCards.
Elvis Aron Presley (January 8, 1935 – August 16, 1977), often known simply as Elvis and also called "The King of Rock 'n' Roll" or simply "The King", was an American singer and actor. He is regarded by many as one of the greatest entertainers of the 20th century. (Presley's birth certificate uses the spelling Aron, but his estate has designated Aaron as the official spelling of his middle name).
Elvis Presley is an icon of modern American pop culture. He represents the American Dream, rising from humble beginnings to extreme heights in popular music through charisma with a capital "C", unique good looks, raw talent and hard work, more often representing teen sexuality with a hint of delinquency.
During the late 1960's and through a large portion of the 1970's, Presley re-emerged as a live performer of old and new hit songs, both on tour and in Las Vegas, Nevada, where he was known for his on-stage highly energetic performances both vocally and physically, his sartorial jump-suits and capes adding to the drama.
