Back in 1948, Ted Mack started the original American Idol on radio and television with his “Original Amateur Hour” to find up-and-coming artists.
Frank Sinatra was one of the contestants.
But in 1953, in Tupelo, Mississippi, a young man failed to make the cut. His name?
Did Elvis give up? Of course not.
In fact, after The King made it, he wrote a letter every year to Ted Mack, saying, “Thank you.”
Don’t quit, can’t fail.
Be like Elvis today.
