David Thibault, Quebec's teen Elvis, goes on tour
The 17-year-old internet sensation will tour the province with his band starting next week
It's been just over six months since David Thibault took the internet by storm with an uncanny imitation of Elvis.
His rendition of Blue Christmas got him almost 10 million hits on YouTube and landed him on the Ellen DeGeneres show.

Now the impersonator is taking his show across the province.
“In the beginning, I was a little bit lost because everything happened so fast. But now I'm more calm,” said Thibault, who is from Saint-Raymond de Portneuf, a small town northwest of Quebec City.
He discovered his uncanny knack for sounding like ‘The King’ after his grandfather died.
“He was a fan of Elvis so when he died in 2008 I started listening to Elvis songs, and I [started] loving it,” Thibault said.
Thibault and his band start touring Quebec next week.
