In 1999, (or was it 2000?) I started my career as a backup dancer for an Elvis performer.

Jamie Aaron Kelley began performing Elvis at the age of 3 and was phenomenally successful. During his late teens and early 20s, my cousin Lane, sister Becky, and friend Amy travelled the country with Jamie, his parents, and our parents, performing in places like Tupelo, MS, where Elvis was born and Memphis during Elvis Week.

Our last performance as a group was in 2004, but we still get together from time to time.

He did a Christmas show in his hometown on Saturday and I took Adam with to the concert. He loved it and so did I. It brought back so many good memories. I haven’t stopped singing “On this Christmas Eve” and I’ve caught Adam (5) singing “That’s Why they Call him Santa Claus” more than once.

And as a big ol’ THANK YOU to all my readers, I’m giving away Jamie’s Christmas CD! It is a mix of traditional Christmas hymns, Jamie’s version of some holiday favorites, and several originals written by Jamie and his wife, Ronda. It is a great addition to your holiday music collection, and would make a great gift, too! Check out the video below for a sample!
