On August 16, 1977 Elvis Presley “left the building” for good. Coincidentally on that fateful day Robert Washington celebrated his own 19th birthday. Fast forward nearly 40 years later and Robert Washington has become one of the world’s greatest Elvis impersonators. Some would say THE best. Others would vehemently disagree. Robert Washington took 2nd place three times in the annual Images of Elvis World Championships held each August in Memphis.  And three times a slew of fans cried foul when he was not crowned King. But after several cracks in the glass ceiling, fans at the World Championships were stunned, shocked, and amazed.  In Elvis’ hometown of Memphis, Tennessee – the city where Martin Luther King was assassinated – Robert Washington made history by becoming the first African American to be crowned World Champion Elvis Impersonator.  See his inspiring story chronicled in the film Almost Elvis, then see him LIVE IN CONCERT. Known in the Elvis world for his onstage flips, athletic dance moves and powerful voice, he leaves fans All Shook Up.  Onstage, the mighty Mr. Washington will be joined by the fantastic Kentucky Rain band.  Plus, there will be an Elvis Trivia Challenge, Elvis art show, Elvis birthday cake and signature Elvis snacks.  Don’t miss this incredible night of live music, film, and fun!When Elvis impersonator Robert Washington of Auburn saw an article in the newspaper about the 1970 Lincoln Mark III being raffled off by the YWCA in Lewiston he thought about putting in a bid. He did not get a chance to do it, but after seeing a documentary of Elvis Presley driving the same vehicle onto the MGM studio in Hollywood, he headed down to see if it was not too late to put in a bid. He made it in time and was the highest bidder. The first thing he wants to do is get it out of the sun and under cover to preserve the paint and vinyl roof. He hopes to drive it to some of his local shows he does in the future. The YWCA will put the money toward the Gendron Challenge that has surpassed the $100,000 figure that will be used to upgrade infrastructure and install new energy saving equipment.
