Jackie Wilson was much admired by Elvis, and rightly so. " but he also offered financial support to Jackie's family, after Wilson became ill and spent several years in a comatose state in hospital. In September 1975 he suffered a heart attack while performing onstage and damaged his head when he fell.
Elvis thought so much of him that he not only copied his moves when performing "Return to Sender" in the film "Girls! Wilson also admitted that he was influenced by Elvis. He went into coma and only emerged from that state briefly in 1976.
Tiny Powell's Paramount Singers recorded it in 1949, but it was not until 1951 and Red Foley's million-selling version that the song became widely popular.

Snow's heyday was between 19, but he continued performing regularly until the mid-1990s. Gordon Lightfoot recorded his own version shortly before Peter, Paul and Mary's hit version of 1964, but his recording was not released until 1966.
He died on 21 January 1984 at the Memorial Hospital in Mount Holly, New Jersey. The story goes that Raynard Miner and Billy Davis wrote a song called "Higher and Higher" and that this song was stolen from Miner's briefcase by Gary Jackson and Carl Smith.
These two got Jackie Wilson to record the song, but it had by that time already been recorded by The Dells.
Sadly, Del Shannon committed suicide early in 1990.
Hank Snow was born Clarence Eugene Snow on in Liverpool, Nova Scotia, and suffered a childhood of poverty and abuse.
Rumour has it that both Bobby Vee and Bobby Darin attempted the number even before Del Shannon, but I have found no proof of this.
