Ben Portsmouth is Elvis Presley Enterprises’ 2012 Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist.
Ben won this prestigious title in Memphis during Elvis Week 2012. Ben, who is from England, is the first and only non-American to hold this title. This win led to an appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman in February 2012 where Ben closed David’s Elvis Week and performed an incredible rendition of ‘American Trilogy’ to an audience in the millions.
Ben has the look, the voice and stage charisma that will have the audience transfixed. Ben will perform songs from Elvis’ historic 1968 Comeback Special as well as Elvis’ concert years.
Portsmouth began his musical journey as an Elvis tribute artist in 2005, when he formed the Taking Care of Elvis band.
Audiences and concert promoters soon realised he was a special talent.
He looked and sounded like The King, and possessed charisma that made crowds almost believe they were watching the real thing, says Mr Winn.
“His talent saw Ben rise rapidly through the ranks of Elvis tribute artists in the United Kingdom,” he says.
Portsmouth qualified to represent Europe at the final of the Images of the King contest, held in the United States in 2010.
Following his first visit to Presley’s Memphis home, Graceland, Portsmouth sang his way to victory to be named world champion.
