Alfie singing Elvis

...It’s Only Love at the Royal Albert Hall on the Storyteller tour.

I love Alfie Boe singing Elvis (and I know that lots of you feel the same) and I couldn’t help dancing around the kitchen whilst I was supposed to be writing this.  Come on, I dare you not to feel like getting up and dancing when you hear this too!

I eventually stopped dancing for long enough to write this and as I watched once or twice, or maybe even more (!) I spotted some great friends in the audience including my lovely friend, Costa Linda who I am shortly seeing for lunch.  It’s lovely Linda’s birthday on 11th April so Happy Birthday lovely!

I was privileged to attend this concert and even more privileged to meet some wonderful people who have become firm friends since I’ve been a fan of Alfie.  Here are some of them at a very cold stage door (Linda W’s, aka jellytots Linda, photo, although she’s in it so think it was Pauline’s husband Paul who actually took it!).

The Two Linda’s are just two of the fabulous friends I’ve made in the last few years – click here to read their Alfie stories.  It’s worth it just to find out how they got their nicknames! If you would like to feature in an Alfie’s Fan Family story, leave a comment!

As we approach the 38th anniversary of Elvis’s death, it seems a good time to revisit Alfie’s special relationship with the King himself.  Fans of Alfie know that one of his longest standing musical influences is Elvis Presley; in his autobiography, My Story, Alfie mentions that he first started listening to Elvis through his brother Joe who was a big fan. He remains a fan to this day, choosing Burning Love as one of his tracks on James Watt’s Radio Stoke One on One interview in November 2014.  This made me very happy as it’s one of my favourite Elvis tracks – would love to hear Alfie sing this:

Other suggestions for Elvis songs we would like to hear Alfie sing are:

  • Jailhouse Rock
  • American Trilogy
  • Blue Suede Shoes
  • Wonder of You
  • Love Me Tender

Now I’m sure all the ladies reading this will be imagining Alfie singing Love Me Tender right now!  Maybe followed up with One Night With You!  Writing this, it occurs to me that there must be an Elvis song for any and every occasion – he had some repertoire.

Now, as we sadly don’t have Alfie singing any of these songs yet, here’s the next best thing and a playlist of Alfie Boe Singing Elvis (feel free to comment with any other videos you’d like to see there):

I can’t leave this Alfie and Elvis fest without once again recounting Cecelia’s story of meeting Elvis at the tender age of 5…on running up to him she got a kiss and a hug, swoon!  Upon meeting Alfie at an HMV album signing a couple of years ago she showed she hasn’t changed a bit in the intervening years by running across the room to hug Alfie (and did I mention that she gave Alfie a kiss the first time she met him?).  Gotta love Cecelia – to read her fan story, click here.

Alfie’s autobiography, My Story, is available here:

There are two types of music, good and bad

The quote above comes from Alfie Boe who is endlessly asked about his broad musical choices and indeed, this love of and willingness to sing as many genres of music as possible, has gained him many fans.  It should be noted however, that this all encompassing approach to music has sometimes meant that critics and some fans are a little confused by Alfie’s career!  More to come of that in a later post.

Fans of Alfie know that one of his longest standing musical influences is the King himself, Elvis Presley.  In his autobiography, My Story, Alfie mentions that he first started listening to Elvis through his brother Joe who was a big fan; he remains a fan to this day, choosing Burning Love as one of his tracks on James Watt’s Radio Stoke One on One interview in November 2014. I’m particularly happy about this as it’s one of my favourite Elvis tracks – would love to hear Alfie sing this!  Are there any other Elvis songs that you would like to hear Alfie sing?  Let me know in the form below:

Back in October, I asked you what your favourite Alfie Boe singing Elvis song was and this was the list you came up with:

The first video is from Car Fest South when Alfie returned to his West London Karaoke Championship winning song Suspicious Minds to the unconfined joy of the entire crowd including Chris Evans – what a moment.  Really glad that If I Can Dream made the list as it meant I could choose one of my favourite Storyteller tour videos (showcasing the incredible talents of Seweuse and Lucy on backing vocals).  This song also gave me one of my favourite Alfie moments with my 8yo son: with my iPod on shuffle one day, Elvis singing If I Can Dream came on and 8yo asked who was singing.  When I replied Elvis, he looked totally confused and said “but why is he singing one of Alfie’s songs” – my work is complete LOL.

Would love to hear your Alfie / Elvis moments, leave me a comment!  You will all have to go a long way to better Cecelia’s Elvis moment – a few years ago (!) at the tender age of 5 she was on holiday when she met the King himself and got a kiss from him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  How fantastic is that?????

I’ll leave you with Elvis and Burning Love:
