(Washington, DC) — The President of the United States is about to bestow an honor on The King of Rock and Roll. Donald Trump has selected Elvis Presley as one of seven recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom. A White House statement says Elvis “defined American culture to billions of adoring fans around the world” by fusing “gospel, country and rhythm and blues to create a sound all his own.” The other recipients include GOP Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah, baseball great Babe Ruth and the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia [[ scah-LEE-uh ]]. This will be President Trump’s first Medal of Freedom ceremony since taking office.
