The first time he heard Elvis sing, it was on 14 January 1973 in front of the living room’s TV screen in the family home of Sugiez, Christian was 13. At the time, television was gathering, friends were invited to see the man walk on the moon, people stayed up all night to watch the satellite broadcast of the legendary concert of the King in Honolulu.

Overwhelmed by the passion for rock'n roll, Christian began by singing Johnny Hallyday in karaoke bars. Thereafter, he got his costumes made by a seamstress friend who cut the bottom of his pants to transform them into flare trousers. He became Chris Aaron, using Elvis Presley's middle name, and performed to the sound of orchestra tapes recorded on audio cassettes. Today, "the boss" is accompanied by a dozen talented musicians, the Memphis Knights, and his custom-made outfits are ordered in Indiana. He is amused by the fact that his name is never written on the door of his dressing room, except once, at the Kursaal in Bern, when he appeared in the first part of a show featuring Marie-Thérèse Porchet who complimented him on the beauty of his hair. Nevertheless, the self-employed truck driver and president of the Elvis fan club gives himself body and soul in what he describes as a hobby practiced with professionalism.

Tonight, invited by the badminton club of Corminboeuf, Christian meticulously prepares himself in the locker room of the multipurpose hall. Admitting a few quirds, he unfurls his "Red Lion" costume with its belt riveted with imposing golden lion heads. The transformation is amazing, the artist concentrates. When he enters the scene, his sensitive and generous personality is coupled with the crooner’s one, sending to the ladies charming winks. In the audience, Mrs. and Mr. Clemence coming from Reconvilier drove more than an hour to attend the concert. No matter the distance, they don’t miss any of their idol's performances, they were the first to reserve their seats in front of the stage.

The hits follow one another, the band’s enthusiasm is contagious, the magic of the groove happens. Without falling into excessive caricature, Chris Aaron sings Elvis with a troubling naturalness, preserving the spirit of the character and of his music that warms the heart and gives courage. The delighted public is carried away by the blues and rock'n roll melodies haloed by the mesmerising voice of a reappeared King.
