RCA/Legacy asked Elvis fans to tell them what tracks they would put on a new compilation of tracks being released to acknowledge the 35th anniversary of the singer's death.
Over 250,000 people from over twenty countries responded and the results will be released on July 31 on I Am An Elvis Fan.
Participants were asked to cast their votes at www.iamanelvisfan.com for their top three songs by Presley in seven musical genres provided by Legacy: '50s, '60s, Country, Movies, Love Songs, Gospel, and In Concert. Facebook and Twitter users were provided with links to share and spread the experience.
The comprehensive I Am an Elvis Fan campaign also invited fans to upload a photo of themselves to be used in an Elvis photo mosaic created by EPE licensee Fan Mosaics. The mosaic, created from nearly 8,000 uploaded photos, will be used for both the I Am an Elvis Fan album cover and a limited edition poster (available for pre-order at www.Elvis.com/ElvisFan).
The release leads into "Elvis Week," a celebration to be held August 10-17 in Memphis.
