The Kings Of Music Are Coming To Lee’s Summit

The Kings Of Music Are Coming To Lee’s Summit

December 22, 2012

A former graduate of Lee’s Summit High School is returning to Lee’s Summit from the stages of Las Vegas in blue suede shoes.

A few years ago, Elvis impersonator, Matt Lewis, began working with Lee’s Summit CARES as a judge for Lee’s Summit’s Got Talent.

“The more I got involved with them, the more I thought it would be nice if we could team up,” Lewis said.

Lewis is bringing his show, “Forever Kings” to Lee’s Summit this March. “Forever Kings” brings the King of Rock n’ Roll and the King of Pop together in one amazing performance. The money raised from this performance will go to Lee’s Summit Cares.

For eighteen years, Lewis was working two shows a night, six days a week. This schedules left him little to no time to return to Lee’s Summit.

“Now that I run my own show, and we set our own hours, it’s really satisfying and fun to come back and do something for the community,” Lewis said.

This particular show has been running for three years and has been performed all over the world.

“We are bringing our dancers from Las Vegas along with our Michael Jackson,” Lewis said. “Michael fans at the end of this show will be Edward Moss fans.”

When Michael passed away, Lewis got the idea to bring the two biggest stars in the music industry back to the stage.

“This is a true dedication to Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley,” Lewis said.

Of course, Lewis can’t take all of the credit for this show.

“My wife, Janell, is the creative director of all of our shows. She is definitely the heart and soul of the whole production,” Lewis said.

Even though Lewis has made it to the spotlight, he has not forgotten his roots.

“Lee’s Summit has been very supportive of my career. Even though I live in Las Vegas, Lee’s Summit will always be my home,” Lewis said.

Lewis plans to continue working with Lee’s Summit CARES and hopes that the success of this performance will lead to many more.

“Forever Kings” will be preformed three times at the John Knox Pavilion: March 15th at 7:30 p.m. and March 16th at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Reserved tickets are $25, $35, $45 and can be purchased at local Hy-Vee stores, Lewis Law Office, Lee’s Summit CARES, and the Examiner. For more information visit lscares.org or call 816-347-3298. Forever Kings tickets would make a perfect Christmas gift.
