Elvis of the Opera

Tonight I saw something I never thought I would see…actually I'm not sure anyone could have ever dreamed of seeing what I saw tonight.  What was this spectacle beyond spectacles you might ask?  Tonight I saw an Elvis impersonator singing "Music of the Night" from Phantom of the Opera.  The crazy thing is, it was actually really good.  He did an amazing job on a really difficult song, but I'm not sure how to describe what it was like watching his performance.  I just couldn't ignore that he was "Elvis".  All I could think about was what kind of commitment it takes to be an impersonator of Elvis or anyone else for that matter.  I mean, if you are going to impersonate Elvis…I mean really do it, you have to go all in.  You can't just stick on a wig and a shiny shirt when you have a gig.  You have to have the hair and the pork chop sideburns all the time.

Is there anything that you are committed ot with such fervor?
