MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) - While people travel from all over the world to participate in Elvis Week, many fans are unable to make the trip. For those who cannot make it, organizers are making it possible to participate using a computer.

The celebration has begun at Graceland, bringing Elvis fans from around the world together in one place. But for those of you joining the fun via your computer, one person you will see a lot of is Memphis musician Brad Birkedahl.

Birkedahl is the official host for elvisweek.com, making sure digital visitors do not miss a beat.

"It doesn't get any cooler than this for a guy like me," said Birkedahl in one of his videos. "Elvis Week is underway. Check it out. People getting off the buses, going on inside the mansion. We've got tons of stuff going on."

Elvis Week is well underway with tribute artist competitions, a candlelight vigil, and much more.

And remember, if you cannot make it, Birkedahl will keep you in the loop via online video, and as always, you can count on WMCTV.COM to keep you up to date on your Elvis Week coverage, too.
