Opportunity Village is remembering the King of Rock n' Roll.

On Jan. 8, Opportunity Village celebrated Elvis Presley’s 81st birthday with a special performance by the OV Elvi group alongside Jesse Garon, the Official Elvis of Las Vegas, at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino.
 
The OV Elvi group is part of Opportunity Village’s Fine and Performing Arts Program and is the ‘World’s Only All Elvis Dance Troupe.’
 
Crowds gathered for the free performance as the OV Elvi impersonated Elvis, performed The King’s signature dance moves and sang backup vocals to some of his biggest hits in front of a larger than life Elvis statue.
 
After the performance, the OV Elvi journeyed through ELVIS: The Exhibition at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino.
