As Elvis Week is in full-swing, many fans are curious as to how the annual celebration first orginated. Elvis fans can hear a one-on-one interview (above) with Elvis Presley Enterprises' President and CEO Jack Soden.
The Candlelight Ceremony began in 1977 after Elvis' passing when fans gathered around the gates of Graceland and placed lit candles on the Graceland wall. The next year more and more fans came to honor the king and 36 years later, Elvis' legacy continues to live on through his fans.
