A 16-year-old French Canadian’s live performance of Elvis Presley’s “Blue Christmas” is so spot on that if you close your eyes you might think Elvis has returned.
David Thibault is the young man with the Presley-like pipes. He stopped by Canadian radio station CKOI 102.1 fm and stunned the hosts and the audience with an Elvis Christmas classic.
In a matter of four days, the video has already generated more than 2 million YouTube hits for the Quebec radio station and Thibault. It has also brought a great deal of attention the young man’s other Elvis clips posted online.
Below are two more videos of Thibault performing other Elvis hits with the word “blue” in the title.
1961′s “Blue Hawaii” was a huge movie hit for Elvis, finishing as a top 10 box office draw that year. And his vocal doppelgänger turns in an admirable performance of the movie’s theme.
No Elvis impersonation story would be complete without a performance of Presley’s cover of Carl Perkin’s hit, “Blue Suede Shoes.” (David Thibault’s voice is still solid in this clip, but his dance moves are not yet approaching those of “The King.”)
