The 54 year old daughter of Elvis Presley, the King of Rock ‘n Roll, passed away yesterday after suffering a full cardiac arrest at her home in Calabasas, California.
Paramedics issued CPR and administered an adrenaline shot to restart her heart before taking her to a local hospital where she was induced into a coma and placed on life support.
She passed away shortly thereafter.
Of course, her tragic death is all the more shocking after she was seen at the Golden Globes just two nights ago.
She, along with her mother Priscilla, were in attendance in support of Elvis, the new Baz Luhrmann Elvis biopic starring Austin Butler, Tom Hanks, Olivia DeJonge and more.
The tributes and heartfelt condolences have been pouring in ever since, and our thoughts and prayers are with her family, especially her mother Priscilla and three surviving children, as they grieve this massive loss.
Personally, I’ve been reminded of her impact on the music world (she was rock and roll royalty, after all) in the wake of this tragedy, specifically her 2018 duet with her father Elvis on his song “Where No One Stands Alone.”
He initially included the song on his 1967 How Great Thou Art gospel album, and she reimagined it as a duet for his 2018 posthumous Where No One Stands Alone is compilation album.
You see shots of a very young Lisa Marie, along with old performances of Elvis singing edited in to make it a duet, as she sings along with him about the hope she finds in life after this, in a place “where no one stands alone.”
I know she’s happy and at peace to be reunited with her father, who famously adored her more than anything in the world (and I think it’s clear she felt the same way), and this will certainly bring the waterworks to watch now…
