Dwight Icenhower was raised in Pomeroy, Ohio and began his Elvis career by singing karaoke at a local fair when he was just 16 years old. Now, he is one of the very few Elvis Tribute Artists that have made a full-time career out of keeping the legend alive.
Dwight performs 4-5 shows weekly and he keeps the audiences asking for more. He’s had the opportunity to share the stage with some personal friends of Elvis including: DJ Fontana, The Jordanaires, The Sweet Inspirations, Cynthia Pepper, Julie Parrish, Charlie Hodge, and Joe Esposito.
Dwight has an amazing voice that has sometimes been mistaken for Elvis himself. He continues to awe audiences of all ages and his fans enjoy him both on and off stage. He wishes to continue using his amazing talent to keep the memory of Elvis alive for many more generations to come. Dwight says that he considers it a dream come true to have such a wonderful job and having the opportunity to meet such wonderful people!
Most recently Dwight was crowned champion of the first ever Heart of the King Fans’ Festival and Contest. He competed against the top Elvis Tribute Artists in the world on the very stage that Elvis made famous in the Las Vegas Hilton.
