Elvis Presley’s former Wife Priscilla Presley received the award on the star’s behalf and quoted that Elvis always wanted to do this album and would have been so pleased to know that he still has a huge fan following and they adore his music till date. Priscilla was glad that Royal Philharmonic Orchestra have put up this album and helped them all realize an unfulfilled dream.
