Sheryl Sharkie, aka "ShElvis," is an Australia's only fulltime female Elvis Tribute Artist. The 58-year-old lives in Sydney but travels far and wide to perform at Elvis Festivals and tribute concerts across the country.

People use the word "resonate"—the songs just meant something to me. I don't know what exactly, but they meant something to me.
