Graceland Wine Shoppe in White Lake celebrates Elvis Presley everyday, but especially on the late singer's birthday, Jan. 8. 

"I always say the king never left the building. He still lives here,” says Dave Sharrak, owner of the store. 

Dave has been collecting Elvis for 37 years. He started when he was a teenager after hearing an Elvis album and falling in love with it. 

"I fell in love with his music and I went from there, picture, album and just kept going,” says Dave. 

And now his collection has grown to possibly 2,000 items. 

Dave also fixed Elvis lunch, poured him a drink and bought the late Rock and Roll Hall of Famer a birthday cake to celebrate.
