Cissy left the Sweets after this engagement to go solo.

Her daughter Whitney also did well in the music field.

Awesome shot! Elvis looked amazing in 1969. Cissy was very attractive. I have always wanted to see a shot of them together.

Thanks!! :D

Nice photo, new to me.
Thanks for sharing.
Whitney's recent concerts in Australia generally got very bad reviews

This great photo was published in Jet magazine 2 weeks after Elvis passed away.
The article was less flattering...
