He said that he would occasionally work on his Elvis impressions by performing Karaoke and working on different breathing techniques. Still, he never pictured himself making a career out of it. He said he was working as a manager at a Target in Houston when he was contacted by a talent scout from Las Vegas.
"I got hired to do a show in Oregon by a guy in Vegas who had seen that I won a few Elvis impersonation contests. He called me up and said ‘Hey, you are doing really good, I think you are perfect for this show.'"
Edwards immediately moved out to Oregon, where he began work as a 50s-style Elvis Tribute Artist.
Since, his career has sky rocketed.
After working in Oregon, Edwards entered a contest in Branson, Mo., and got hired to do Elvis-A-Rama from 2003 to 2006, where he took over as the main Elvis in 2005. He was then hired to be part of the "Legends in Concert" show after which he made his first television career in an English commercial in London. He was on the "Young and the Restless" in 2005, where he got to show off his singing skills. In 2006, he was hired by Elvis Enterprises to do a 50th anniversary of Elvis's show and performed with Elvis's backup group - the Jordanaires. Since that time, he worked private parties for celebrities such as Marie Osmond and Dale Earnhardt Jr.
"In my short career I have gotten to work with D.J. Fontana, Elvis's original drummer, and Jimmy Velvet, a popular sixties singer and close friend of Elvis. It's interesting to be with people that Elvis used to surround himself with," said Edwards.
Edwards said he has also traveled around the world performing sold-out shows from Australia to Japan. He has pretty wild fans everywhere he goes.
