Millie Kirkham

Millie Kirkham's association with Elvis Presley began with a
1957 recording session, one that yielded, among other
classics, Blue Christmas, which features some of the most
unique vocal background work she and the Jordanaires ever
did with the superstar. Throughout the next twenty years
Kirkham's strong, clear soprano could be heard on many
of Elvis' pop, rock, gospel and country recordings such as
The Wonder of You, Surrender, How Great Thou Art,
Polk Salad Annie, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Don't,
Just Pretend, Devil in Disguise, C. C. Rider, and many
others. She also sang with Elvis on movie soundtracks
and appeared with him on stage in Las Vegas. Kirkham
has long been a fixture in the music community in Nashville.
Her credits include numerous radio and television
appearances, collaborations with the Jordanaires and the
Anita Kerr Singers, and recording sessions in Nashville,
Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Among the many artists she
has recorded with are Roy Orbison, Dolly Parton, Jerry
Lee Lewis, Burl Ives, Johnny Cash, Brenda Lee, Willie
Nelson, Pete Fountain, Bob Dylan, Perry Como, Carl
Perkins, Rosemary Clooney, Little Richard, Reba McIntire,
Brook Benton, Tammy Wynette, Vic Damone, Paul Anka,
George Jones, Patti Paige, Les Paul & Mary Ford, Eddy
Arnold, Loretta Lynn and, of course, Elvis Presley.
