Matt Stone has the style, the moves and the voice of a decades-old icon. Matt, who is only 16-years-old, just started his junior year at Park Vista High School and is an Elvis tribute artist.

“I started studying his intonation, the way he would pronounce things,” Matt said. “That was how I finally developed that Elvis voice.”

His fascination with Elvis started when he was 12-year- old, watching an episode of Full House.

“Uncle Jesse, who plays a big Elvis fan, was singing ‘Jailhouse Rock,’” he said.

Matt started watching Elvis videos and eventually decided to perform as the “Prince” of Rock and Roll. He said his theater teacher at Park Vista helped him develop acting skills to emulate Elvis.

“A lot of different things that the theater teacher has given, little tips and tricks to step into his shoes, I’ve really clicked with,” he said.


The School District of Palm Beach County offers a variety of classes in the performing arts. Taxpayers approved a property tax increase In November 2018 to provide more than $50 million for 650 Art, Music, PE, Health, Choice and Career, education teachers.
