Elvis is now playing in theaters and the movie has it all. An amazing soundtrack, a carefully stitched story, and impactful performances. For starters, what a talent Austin Butler has proven to be! But is he really the one singing? Is Austin Butler really singing in the movie Elvis?

We have to give a shout to the young Chaydon Jay, who plays the role of a young Elvis Presley. This star is going places, be on the lookout for him in future projects! Jay masterfully portrays Elvis as a kid, from his emotions to some killer dance moves.

As audiences see Elvis grow, Austin Butler takes over and continues the passion in music that Jay helped install. And as if Butler’s performance wasn’t enough, there’s also the fact that he sings, too!
