Priscilla Presley and her daughter Lisa Marie joined thousands of Elvis Presley fans from around the world at The King's Memphis, Tennessee home on Thursday (08Jan15) to celebrate what would have been the late singer's 80th birthday.

Devotees gathered at Graceland in sub-freezing temperatures and sang Happy Birthday to Elvis after his ex-wife and daughter led a cake-cutting ceremony.

A full day of festivities is planned at the Memphis estate, where The King died in 1977, aged 42, including a memorabilia auction planned for Thursday evening.

Among the items expected to fetch a high price is Presley's copy of his first record.
