The King of Rock and Roll died more than 40 years ago, but the spirit of Elvis lives on in Hong Kong.

For nearly three decades, 67-year-old Melvis Kwok has been keeping the King’s spirit alive and rocking. He is a local legend in Hong Kong and one of a few full-time Elvis impersonators—and he’s vowed to keep on rocking it until he can’t move.
