Edmond native to perform at Graceland

EDMOND — Jonathan O'Neil, a Berklee College of Music student from Edmond, will be a featured performer at Graceland's 40th anniversary in August in Memphis, Tennessee. O'Neil said he and “The King” have a family connection. "Around 1952, Elvis ... would go out to the courtyard under a tree and play songs and girls would gather around him to watch," O'Neil said. "One girl was my great-grandfather's high school sweetheart at the time. He and Elvis got into a fight over her, but they resolved it by buying each other milkshakes. They became friends for a while up until Elvis reached stardom.”
