Lisa Marie Presley (born February 1, 1968 in Memphis, Tennessee) is an American singer, daughter of Elvis Presley and his wife Priscilla Beaulieu Presley.
Lisa Marie is a close friend of her father's ex-girlfriend Linda Thompson. In 2003, after advice from Thompson's record producer and then-husband David Foster, she launched a career as a singer. Her debut album, To Whom It May Concern, reached #5 on the Billboard 200 albums chart and was certified gold. To promote it she presented a concert in the UK, something that her father never did. Presley released her second album, Now What, in 2005 and it reached #9 on the Billboard 200. It was certified gold in November 2005. Unlike her first album, Now What included a Parental Advisory sticker.
Lisa Marie attended a variety of schools, mostly boarding schools, a few in Los Angeles County, and also in Ojai, Ventura County, California. She was expelled from at least one boarding school due to illegal drug abuse, especially cocaine. She was briefly a student at a Church of Scientology school in Los Angeles.
