Graceland said in a news release Yearwood will also sing at the ceremony, set for 6 p.m. Friday, and patients from Le Bonheur Children's Hospital in Memphis will assist in lighting up Presley's home.

The event is free and open to the public. The lighting ceremony can also be seen at http://www.graceland.com , https://livestream.com/ElvisPresleyGraceland or https://www.periscope.tv/visitgraceland and heard on Elvis Radio, SiriusXM Channel 19.

Decorations will include hundreds of blue lights along the driveway, as well as decorations originally displayed by Presley and his family. The home will also feature the family's Christmas decor for holiday tours starting Friday.
