17-year-old Liam Doyle has been obsessed with Elvis Presley since he saw John Stamos impersonate him on the hit show Full House. Now, he travels as an Elvis tribute artist. The twist is, Liam has Down Syndrome, but that didn’t stop him from learning all the songs and lyrics, the outfits, and even the dance moves!
“I remember the episode when [Stamos] sang ‘Suspicious Minds,’” Liam said, referencing an episode of Full House. I knew then what I was made for.”
Liam Doyle is an Elvis tribute artist, and is doing it successfully!
He continues, “I felt like Elvis had put his hand down and pulled me up by his belt,” Liam jokes. “I think he was so amazing.” Since 2016, Liam has devoted his free time to learning everything Elvis-related, from his rock ‘n roll music to his gospel Church hymns.
“He would sing Elvis songs in the house all the time,” Liam’s mom Cheryl reveals. “My husband and I eventually got him a voice coach so he could sing the songs better. This was his passion and I didn’t want to turn him from it.”
His mom says he is so great at it, that he may need an agent or manager soon!
