StoryCorps Chicago: “Elvis Is A Way For Me To Connect With People”

At 17 years old, Hugo Colin is Chicago’s youngest Elvis Presley tribute artist. The Lane Tech senior has been performing as the King of Rock and Roll for more than a decade. Earlier this year, Hugo came to the StoryCorps booth in the Chicago Cultural Center with his mom, Paula, to reminisce about how it all began.
