Elvis filled in the blank lines of his parent's marriage certificate with his own name and that of "Magdline" Morgan, a girl he knew from church. He wrote in September 11th as the date of their marriage. This all was a big surprise, 50 years later, to Magdalene, when she heard about it. She commended: " It was just a very sweet relationship. At that time, if you just held hands, it was very serious. And we did hold hands a lot".

Just been fired by Elvis the other night, the Colonel and Elvis kept their argument going. Elvis however was a little stressed who to turn to for a manager. The Colonel however, carried on as usual.
In the meantime Elvis had flown in a gospel quartet from Nashville, with Donnie Sumner and Sherrill Nielsen. The idea to presented them to Tom Jones, but it didn't work out with Tom Jones. Elvis, however, liked their singing and he hired them for $100,000 a year as his personal backup group. He called them Voice.
