Wednesday (Aug. 16) marks the 29th anniversary of Presleys 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 didnt 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 its 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.
