Elvis Presley was an American icon best known for his music. Called the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis popularized rockabilly music during the 1950s and starred in numerous films during this period. After being drafted into the military and taking a break from performing in the first half of the 1960s, Elvis returned to the stage in Las Vegas in 1968, and starred in the first globally broadcast concert in 1973. Presley died in 1977 from a heart attack, and is today considered to be a cultural icon. This button may have come from a 1987 convention held in honor of the Elvis International Tribute Week, when Elvis fans congregated to celebrate the life and music of the singer.
