(Gibson) Elvis Presley fans who had gathered at Graceland to mark the 35th anniversary of the singer's death got a surprise Wednesday night when Priscilla Presley and Lisa Marie Presley joined them at the vigil. It was the first time Elvis's widow and daughter had appeared together at the annual gathering, according to an Associated Press report.

"You should see this from our point of view," said Priscilla Presley, looking out at the crowd from an elevated stage. Lisa Marie Presley stood alongside her, looking at thousands of lit candles held aloft by the fans. "It's truly a sight to behold."

The vigil marked the high point of Elvis Week, an annual Memphis event that celebrates the life of the legendary singer. Organizers estimate that 75,000 fans took part in the vigil. "I've always avoided this because I felt that it would be too emotional," said Lisa Marie Presley, "but I really felt it was important to come down here tonight. I love you very, very, very much." more on this story
