Johnny Harra Passed Away

(from Megan Murphy's FB page)
We first heard the news that Johnny Harra had possibly passed away yesterday. It has now been confirmed.

Johnny Harra was an American Elvis impersonator. He began impersonating Elvis at the age of 11 and was cast as the 42 year old Elvis Presley in the 1981 docudrama This Is Elvis.Harra, one of five actors to portray Elvis in the movie, was featured in two scenes from the re-enactment of August 16, 1977, filmed at Graceland. He also starred as a Vegas headliner for many years before battling with diabetes and arthritis. After many years in seclusion he returned to the stage before the 25th anniversary of Elvis' death.

Johnny Harra has been featured in many newspapers and magazines, and on national TV shows like Merv Griffin, Johnny Carson and Dick Clark. Johnny traveled internationally performing his “Profiles of Presley” show. Johnny died on March 30, 2011.

How sad to hear I saw Johnny in concert here in Colorado in 1979 and he was so great. RIP Johnny were a true impersonator of Elvis.
