Zella Mae Mosher, age 62, is sitting on her front stoop on a warm autumn afternoon. She is barefoot and her hair is wrapped up in purple rollers. "It was like a fire just burning up inside of me.

She is describing her first encounter with the music of Elvis Presley, America's most celebrated icon.
