The King of Blacktown Hospital meets his idol

Blacktown Hospital patient John “Sean” O’Malley is  the rocking, jiving dementia patient who became an overnight online sensation when a video of him performing Elvis hits went viral.

And Sean got the shock of his LIFE this week when he came face-to-face with his musical idol – Elvis.

Steve King, a popular Sydney-based Elvis impersonator, popped into Blacktown Hospital to surprise Sean with a personal serenade before handing him a pair of Elvis glasses so they could perform a few numbers together.

We were on-hand to capture the moment the pair met and all the dance moves from their hour-long music fest.
