The story had a happy ending – all 33 miners trapped 2,300 feet below in a collapsed mine shaft were rescued and the world rejoiced. For one particular member of 'los 33' however, the terrible experience would inadvertently lead to a dream come true.

Edison Pena – known for his athletic endeavours and jubilant personality among his fellow crew - is also a huge fan of all things Elvis. Invited to the US on an “Elvis tour”, the 34-year-old has had the chance to visit Graceland and ride in a pink Cadillac to Tupelo, Mississippi: the birthplace of the King.

The icing on the cake however was the invitation to perform a cameo in Cirque de Soleil’s production of “Viva Elvis” in Las Vegas
