on AGT, Joseph went on tour (U.S., Europe and Mexico)
and finally made Branson his performance home in February

performance – just like Elvis did.
2006, Joseph dressed up as Elvis for a Halloween Party.

at more events in his hometown of Lincoln, Nebraska.
It didn't take long for him to decide he loved what

Joseph does all "Eras of the King," which
was also the name of his show during his first season
in Branson at the Historic Owen's Theater. "Suspicious
Minds" is always a crowd favorite.
