Lisa Marie Presley, the daughter of Elvis and Priscilla Presley, has sadly passed away aged 54.

The singer-songwriter, who was the couple’s only child together, was hospitalised Thursday after suffering a cardiac arrest in her home.

“It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” Priscilla Presley said in a statement to The Associated Press. “She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I have ever known.”

She asked for privacy as the family dealt with “this profound loss.”

The news came just two days after Presley attended the Golden Globe Awards, where she watched actor Austin Butler accept the award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture for his portrayal of her father.

She was joined on the carpet by Jerry Schilling, 80, a longtime friend of her late father and member of the so-called Memphis Mafia who looked after Elvis.

Her mother, Priscilla, was also in attendance.

Presley released three studio albums throughout her career, most recently the album “Storm & Grace” In 2012.

She has also received recognition for her charitable works around homelessness and literacy in Memphis, Tennessee, where she was born and her father kicked off his legendary music career.

Speaking to Good Morning America in 2007 she reflected: “He’d always wake me up to sing in the middle of the night, get on the table and sing.”

“I remember him as my dad, but he was a very exciting dad.”

Presley was married four times: first to musician Danny Keough and later to pop star Michael Jackson. She later married actor Nicolas Cage and guitarist Michael Lockwood.
