By  

Celebrity tribute artist, dancer and model Manny Caso shares some of his background and recent experiences in 'Elvis style.' Caso, out of Miami, Fla., is known as "Manuelvis."

WHO WAS ELVIS PRESLEY?

As most know, Elvis Presley was a singer, musician, and actor and regarded as one of the most significant cultural icons of the 20th century. He is often referred to as 'the King of Rock and Roll,' or simply, 'the King.'"

LATEST PROJECT FOR MANNY CASO

One of Caso's latest projects, as Elvis, was a commercial advertising women's blue jeans. It ended up being a national TV commercial!

Question: WHO IS MANNY CASO (AS ELVIS)?

Manny Caso: Manny Caso is, like Elvis was, a professional when it comes to being an entertainer. He tells it like it is, as Elvis that is.

Q: Manny, how did this all begin, you as Elvis Presley?

MC: "I unexpectedly was chosen and hand-picked by Priscilla Presley (former wife of Elvis) to be the model in her fragrance ads. Also, I modeled in an award-winning poster as Elvis.

Since then I have been a part of music videos and TV commercials as Elvis. I am more focused now on 'him' as a tribute artist. I most recently added 'singing Elvis' to my repertoire. Too, 'Manuelvis' is my stage name!"

Q: Did you always portray Elvis?

MC: "No, I was and still am a professional dancer and model, plus I portray other celebs as well. I've 'been' Elvis (50s, 60s and 70s Elvis) for over a decade, but back then I was only 'the look.' I have greatly expanded into more of this amazing legend!"

"BEING" ELVIS

Q: How close to detail are you when it comes to "being" Elvis?

MC: "My wardrobe and other details of his look are perfect, as perfect as can be. Readers can view my photos to see what I'm talking about."

Q: Didn't I see you in a TV ad recently?

MC: "Yes, you might have. I portrayed Elvis for 'American Icons' Macy's campaign. Plus, earlier this year, myself and a few other 'Elvis' tribute artists, shot a jeans commercial in Miami. I happened to be featured (close up) in it too. All we did was walk across the street, in our white Elvis jumpsuits, pass a model wearing the company's jeans, and then we looked back at her. It was amazing!"

WHAT ELVIS MEANS TO MANNY CASO

Q: What did/does Elvis mean to you?

MC: "Elvis may have left the building, but he will always remain in my life. I like to think, through my portrayal of him, that he's in others' lives too, time and time again!"
