The doctor that
delivered Ray told his mother, that she had her own little Elvis,
because his hair was long and dark.
Little did she know, but many years later her son was to be a Elvis
Tribute Artist. Ray has always loved Elvis’s music.
One day, Ray attended a costume party with a friend
that begged him to attend and told him he should dress like Elvis.
The party was at a
large club and was a live broadcast from a popular Rock-N-Roll
station in Houston. When Ray entered the whole place went crazy!!
played along and Ray had his own bodyguards all night.
A month later he invested in a karaoke machine and taught himself
how to sing. Ray worked hard every night, practicing and studied
word for word. In 1990 he tried it out in public for the first time
at a karaoke club in Pasadena, Texas. Ray told himself if the crowd
liked it he would
continue to sing, if not he would give it up. The crowd cheered
after he sang and from that moment on he was hooked.
Ray has a heart of gold.
Ray donates his time for anyone in need. He sings regularly at
Hospitals, all the charities through out the Houston and surrounding
area’s. He even shuts down his own business in the afternoons three
to four times a
month to sing for the Nursing homes.
Ray is good friends with many of the Elvis’s personal
friends and band
members. John Wilkinson is one of Ray’s best friends. Ray sings over
300 songs, and sings from his heart. His feelings are in every
song he sings from his soul, you can tell he feels it.
