How it all started:
Lisa Marie was born on
1968, precisely nine months following her parents’ wedding, into
a world of luxury, riches – and a lot of media attention.
When Elvis and Priscilla divorced in 1973, she was placed in her
mother’s custody, but still spent a lot of her time with her
father. When he died on August 16, 1977, she was named in his
testament as the heiress to his entire estate.
Her adolescent years were rather turbulent – she was a party
animal and an excessive user of alcohol and drugs. Her mother
desperately tried solving this in many various ways – and in the
end successfuly, at age 18 after going through Scientology’s
Purification Program (allegedly introduced to it by John
Travolta), Lisa Marie quit her habits and remained drug-free
Her private life is at length described elsewhere - her marriage
to musician Danny Keough with whom she has two children,
Danielle Riley and Benjamin Storm, her much-publicized yet
short-lived marriage to Michael Jackson – which turned the
media’s tone into that of sharp sarcasm – her turbulent
relationship with Nicolas Cage. Her charitable work which
includes campaign against medicating mentally-handicapped
children, her support for the hurricane Katrina victims –
towards whom went the proceeds of her 2007 duet with Elvis’ “In
the Ghetto” – and other work for beneficial causes doesn’t get
quite so much limelight but is as much part of her life – and
therefore also her music.
Despite occasional flirtations with the muse, she only released
her debut album in 2003 under the name “To Whom It May Concern”.
She wrote all of the album’s lyrics and co-wrote some of its
music. The album debuted at no. 5 of the Billboard 200 album
chart and was certified gold in the same year, going platinum in
It was followed two years later by “Now What” – which also went
platinum in 2006.
She’s obviously not much urged to use music as a means to
becoming famous or make money, so she can just take her time and
be one of those that have music serving the purpose it was
always meant to have – as she puts it:
"I got re-inspired. I realized this is what this
is for – not me talking everywhere and being all over the place.
It’s what I was originally doing, being a music lover and
putting out music and hoping people would hear it and it would
help someone somewhere."
