Grass Roots Elvis

In 2012, Elvis Presley Enterprises (EPE) held a contest to find a co-host for Elvis Week. I made a video , submitted it and sadly didn't win. Elvis Week came and went and I wasn't able to go (I had went the previous year in 2011). It also happened to be the same week that I had to move from West Virginia to California. When I found out that I wasn't going to win, I was sad. I invested a lot of time and had my friends back me up in making the video. It took our time, our efforts and we had put a lot of thought into it. I thought we did pretty good. 

Now most people would just take their rejection and walk away. That's not me

You see, I'm one of those people who when they get rejected wants it even more. It doesn't matter how badly I wanted it the first time, now I want to co-host more than anything! You see, I'm not just an Elvis fan. I'm the Elvis fan. I've been a fan since I was a little girl. One Christmas all of my gifts were Elvis related. I got the 3D Graceland puzzle, vintage concert buttons, his movies, stand ups etc. Not to mention every Christmas since then I still get tons of new Elvis gifts. Growing up we would go to Pigeon Forge and watch the tribute artists perform, hang out with Charlie Hodge (one of Elvis' closest friends) and then go through the local Elvis Museum there. My love continued to grow. So naturally I started going to Graceland. Then finally I was able to go to Elvis Week. Plus I'm determined, smart and realllllly want it. 

The fact that the possibility of co-hosting is out there in the world makes me so excited. Just the thought of it makes me come alive with excitement. Now... I don't know if EPE is going to do it again this year for Elvis Week 2013 but I'm here now starting a #grassrootselvis plan to be apart of Elvis week in some way. I'll co-host events, I'll run errands if that's what they want. I'll basically do whatever they want from me as long as I can be apart of it in some official way. How am I going to do that? Well that's where you come in...

I need help! Get out there and start watching the video . Tell your friends, blog about it, tweet about it (tag me @jmomiller), hashtag about it (#grassrootselvis, #jennifermillerelvis), facebook it, instagram (tag me @jmomiller) it or like my posts about it. DO ANYTHING to get the word out there. Cause if there's one thing I've learned is that social media has a huge power and us bloggers are loyal. So help me succeed! I'm smart, I'm witty, well spoken and would love this opportunity. So there you have it. My campaign has began. I'm totally going grass roots. Plus the video is entertaining! 

You can find the link to all of my social media sites on the left hand column. You can also find the video on Youtube here . Spread the word friends! #grassrootselvis !!!! Just think of the updates and posts that could come from co-hosting this amazing event!
