Elvis Presley Video Video : Lisa Marie and Elvis Presley : In The Ghetto Duet : (03:09)

Here is the Lisa Marie and Elvis Presley duet of In The Ghetto recorded to commemorate the 30th anniversary of her father's death. Lisa Marie said she decided not only to sing, but to sing with him. 'I wanted to use this for something good', she told us of her posthumous 'In the Ghetto' duet with Elvis Presley. 'All fingers pointed towards New Orleans'. She filmed the video in the hurricane-ravaged city, and all proceeds from the video and single benefited a new Presley Place transitional housing.

Elvis Duets DVD with CD.

Elvis Duets DVD (with bonus CD)

Now on DVD (With a special BONUS CD) is a colourful collection of Elvis songs with the theme: 'Duets'. During his movie career, Elvis recorded a vast amount of songs together with other vocalists.

The result is a wide variety of songs and video clips out of the many well known Elvis movies. An entertaining collection that is nice to watch. Rare are the images of the 1960 'Welcome Home Elvis' Frank Sinatra TV-Special; they remain a unique momentum to see.

Other rare performances include Lisa Marie's duet with Elvis on 'In The Ghetto' during an Oprah TV-show, complete with Gospel Choir.

It is beyond anyone's guess why this never turned into a big hit; great performance.

Also: Celine Dion's duet with Elvis on 'Amercian Idol' and Martina McBride appearing - with Elvis on screen - on a tv-show to promote the 'Christmas Duets' album. The odd one out is a clip from 'Beyonce & Jay-Z'.

A nice produced DVD with a special selection of songs and images.

Songs include;

  1. Don't Cry Daddy : Elvis and Lisa Marie Presley
  2. In The Ghetto : Elvis and Lisa Marie Presley
  3. I Love You Because : Elvis and Lisa Marie Presley
  4. If I Can Dream : Elvis and Celine Dion

Lyrics : In The Ghetto by Elvis Presley

As the snow flies 
On a cold and gray Chicago mornin' 
A poor little baby child is born 
In the ghetto 
And his mama cries 
'cause if there's one thing that she don't need 
it's another hungry mouth to feed 
In the ghetto

People, don't you understand 
the child needs a helping hand 
or he'll grow to be an angry young man some day 
Take a look at you and me, 
are we too blind to see, 
do we simply turn our heads 
and look the other way

Well the world turns 
and a hungry little boy with a runny nose 
plays in the street as the cold wind blows 
In the ghetto

And his hunger burns 
so he starts to roam the streets at night 
and he learns how to steal 
and he learns how to fight 
In the ghetto

Then one night in desperation 
a young man breaks away 
He buys a gun, steals a car, 
tries to run, but he don't get far 
And his mama cries

As a crowd gathers 'round an angry young man 
face down on the street with a gun in his hand 
In the ghetto

As her young man dies, 
on a cold and gray Chicago mornin', 
another little baby child is born 
In the ghetto
