Lisa Marie Presley died at 54

The singer-songwriter and philanthropist is survived by her family, which includes mother Priscilla Presley and daughter Riley Keough.

Music queen Lisa Marie Presley has passed away.

The singer-songwriter and Elvis Presley’s only child died in January 2023 of complications from cardiac arrest. Presley was 54 years old. TMZ first reported that Presley was treated with CPR on Jan. 12 after paramedics were called to her home in Calabasas, California. She was taken to a hospital where she later died.

“It is with a heavy heart that I share the devastating news that our beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has passed away,” mother Priscilla Presley confirmed to People on Thursday. “She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I have ever known. We ask for privacy as we try to deal with this profound loss. Thanks for the love and prayers. There will be no further comment at this time.”

Presley is survived by her mother, Priscilla, and actress Riley Keough, and their two daughters, Harper and Finley Lockwood. Her son Benjamin Keough committed suicide in 2020.

Presley opened up on National Grief Awareness Day in August 2022 that she was struggling to cope with life without her son Benjamin.

“It’s a real decision to move on, one I have to make every day and one that’s constantly challenging to say the least. But I keep going for my girls,” Presley wrote in an essay for People magazine. “I am continuing because my son has made it very clear in his final moments that caring for and taking care of his little sisters is at the forefront of his concerns and thoughts. He absolutely adored her and she him.”

Singer-songwriter Presley released her debut album, To Whom It May Concern, in 2003, which reached #5 on the Billboard 200 albums chart and later went gold. Presley wrote all the lyrics for the album and co-wrote only one track with Gus Black. She also collaborated with Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan on the song “Savior.” Presley revealed a “duet” with her late father Elvis in 2007 using vintage footage.

A lifelong philanthropist, Presley sang primarily at charity concerts and fundraisers. Her famous music videos included “In the Ghetto,” directed by American History X boss Tony Kaye, and featuring scenes from a New Orleans devastated by Hurricane Katrina. The single and music video benefited a new transitional housing campus at Presley Place in the city of Louisiana. She also famously appeared in Michael Jackson’s You Are Not Alone music video and later married the King of Pop.

In addition to Jackson, Presley was married to Nicolas Cage, music producer Michael Lockwood, and musician Danny Keough.

Presley recently collaborated with filmmaker Baz Luhrmann on the biopic Elvis. She hailed the film as “absolutely exquisite” and urged the Academy Awards to recognize lead actor Austin Butler’s complete transformation into the king of rock ‘n’ roll. Presley recently attended the 2023 Golden Globes to celebrate the award-winning film.

“Let me tell you, it’s nothing short of spectacular,” she said tweeted after seeing the movie. “Austin Butler beautifully channeled and embodied my father’s heart and soul. In my humble opinion his performance is unparalleled and finally executed accurately and respectfully. If he doesn’t get an Oscar for it, I’ll eat my own foot, haha.”

Another Presley family biopic in the works is Sofia Coppola’s “Priscilla,” based on Priscilla Presley’s 1985 memoir “Elvis and Me,” starring Cailee Spaeny (“Mare of Easttown”) and Jacob Elordi as Priscilla and Elvis.
