Today, we mourn the passing of Lisa Maria Presley, the only child of the legendary Elvis Presley. Lisa was a beloved singer-songwriter and actress, whose life was tragically cut short at the age of 54. She had been rushed to the hospital following a cardiac arrest. Her ex-husband, actor Nicolas Cage, paid tribute to her memory, saying that she had the loudest laugh he had ever heard and that she lit up every room she entered. Lisa was married four times, first to musician Danny Keough, with whom she had two children. Her last marriage was to her guitarist, music producer and director, Michael Lockwood, to whom she was married for ten years. During her music career, she released three studio albums, two of which reached the top 10 on the Billboard 200. Just a few days ago, Lisa made her last public appearance at the 2023 Golden Globe Awards with her mother, to celebrate the release of the Elvis biopic directed by Baz Luhrmann. Her passing has been met with an outpouring of grief and admiration from celebrities such as Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins, Pink, the Jacksons, Bette Midler, Corey Feldman, Octavia Spencer, John Travolta and Mia Farrow. We remember Lisa Maria Presley for her immense talent and the joy she brought to so many.
