“Don’t Cry Daddy” Duet by Elvis Presley and his Daughter Lisa Marie Presley Will Make You Cry!
Despite the song’s title, “Don’t Cry Daddy,” this duet is sure to make anyone cry. “Don’t Cry Daddy” was composed by Mac Davis, and was first released in 1969 by the legend himself, Elvis Presley.
The song reached number six on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1970, becoming one of Elvis Presley’s biggest hits of his entire career. But when Elvis Presley’s daughter Lisa Marie Presley did a virtual duet of the song with his late father, the song really stuck with many country listeners.
Lisa Marie recorded a music video for the song after her father’s deɑth in 1997, singing it as a duet with her father’s original recordings. The audience is amazed as they watch this music video appear on a screen showing pictures of Elvis and his young daughter in this amazing computerized blend of their voices.
The two appear to be singing alongside each other as images flash across the screen, almost as if the icon is there singing live with his daughter. The audience was moved to teɑrs, as it somehow brought back the nostalgic feeling to everyone. Maybe because they too have lost someone in their life, or they just lack a legend.
