The once trapped Chilean miner who gained worldwide attention for leading sing-a-longs during the extensive time underground is being honored at the Elvis birthday celebration this weekend in Graceland.

Edison Pena gained recognition for this love of the King when he engaged his fellow trapped miners in songs by Elvis to help keep their morale up during the ordeal. A special tribute has been incorporated for Pena into the Elvis birthday festivities.

Graceland is expecting hundreds of fans to arrive over the weekend to help take part in the celebration of Elvis birthday. They have many events planned for the guests including a tour with Pena, the cutting of a birthday cake and a special tribute concert.
