Fans Find Everything Elvis Presley at Elvis Expo Show

MEMPHIS, TN - Elvis Presley lives, or at least his image does, during the three-day 2007 Elvis Expo trade show.

More than 100 vendors hawking all things Elvis can be found at the event at the Memphis Cook Convention Center timed to the 30th anniversary of Presley's death on Thursday.  Fans can find shoes, shirts, books, bags, pictures, posters and paraphernalia galore bearing Presley's face.

For anyone looking for their 15 minutes of fame, a karaoke booth is available as long as you only want to sing Elvis songs.

Will Reynolds of Mount Vernon, Kentucky, earned the crowd's approval with his polished rendition of "Burning Love."

The 13-year-old says he just feels a connection to Elvis.
