Elvis Impersonator Is Planning World Peace Tour In Honor Of The King

MONTREAL (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – An Elvis Presley impersonator in Montreal is taking the phrase “worshipping the King” to a whole new level.

Wednesday (Aug. 16) marks the 29th anniversary of Presley’s death, and singer Dan Hartal – who is better known as “Schmelvis” the Jewish Elvis – is planning a world peace tour in his name.

Although Schmelvis says Presley didn’t like to discuss politics, he believes that if the King were still alive, he would step up to help people in the Middle East.

Says Hartal: “His music took people to a higher realm than politics – I hope my music can do the same.”

Schmelvis plans to play Elvis tunes along with his own original work on the tour, which will include stops in Toronto, Hollywood, Vatican City and the Holy Land.

While this tour might seem excessive, Schmelvis says it’s a small price to pay for the singer.

As he puts it, “Elvis was such a giving person and different from all the others – he was a righteous individual and he had a heart of gold.”
