“`Lisa Marie Presley,  the daughter of Elvis and former wife of Michael Jackson and Nicholas Cage, was considered Hollywood royalty. She was the sole owner of Graceland, Elvis’ estate in Memphis, Tennessee, despite having sold off Elvis Presley Enterprises in 2005.                                 LISA MARIE PRESLEY –>

“`After the divorce of her parents,  she lived with her mother and frequently visited her dad at his estate.  As a singer, a number of albums and virtual collaborations with her father kept her relevant as his legacy kept growing. On her twenty-fifth birthday, Lisa Marie claimed the entire estate, which had grown to an estimated $100 million. In 2012, she opened an exhibit: Elvis… Through His Daughter’s Eyes. This is now included in the Graceland VIP Tour and features two hundred items assembled by Presley and the Graceland Archives staff.

“`A humanitarian spirit was part of Lisa Marie’s DNA. She oversaw the Elvis Presley Charitable Foundation, which concentrated on housing and educational projects. She worked with Oprah Winfrey and her Angel Network,  which was active in the relief efforts after Hurricane Katrina. Lisa Marie became a patron of the Dream Factory, which helped grant wishes to terminally ill children.  And she visited orphanages around the world at various stops of a Michael Jackson concert date, while they were married. She partnered with the Grammy Foundation to mentor up-and-coming musical artists.

“`Lisa Marie’s final appearance was on Tuesday, as she joined Priscilla (her mom) to celebrate Austin Butler’s Golden Globe win for his performance in Elvis. During his acceptance speech, he gave a special shout-out to the family, and to Lisa Marie, in particular.


“`A true humanitarian and philanthropist, Lisa Marie Presley was fifty-four.
