Being the daughter of a legend comes with a lot of pressure, and growing up without your father can have untold effects on a child. That is Lisa Marie's life life story.
She was just nine years old when her father, the celebrated Elvis Presley, passed away in 1977.
She went through three marriages and, most recently, she struggled with drug addiction. However, it is remarkable that through these rough patches, her late father has remained her anchor.
It is genuinely touching that despite how young she was when she lost him, she remembers him as a great father, someone who put family first. She demonstrated the bond she shared with her dad through her latest single.
Lisa Marie released a duet she recorded superimposing on his gospel hit, Where No One Stands Alone. Not only did she show an impressive musical talent, but she also bared her soul to the world.
The music video was a mash-up of never-seen-before pictures and videos from the singer's childhood, and they all added for an emotional compilation.
Many of the memorabilia displayed how tightly knit the family was before the King's sad demise.
In an interview with Lorraine, a British talk show, Lisa Marie talked about the song and explained that she had a habit of 'talking' to her father despite over four decades since his demise.
She said that there were times when she was down in the trenches and what helped her get through it were memories from her childhood.
The track was an attempt to feel closer to her dad. The result, however, reminds fans of how amazing Elvis was and how much of a singer Lisa Marie is, and the blend of their voices is seamless.
Even though he has been gone, Elvis still plays an important role in many people's lives through his music. His personal life can also be an inspiration, and it challenges present day celebs to be good fathers even as they make it big in showbiz.
