NYPost: He ascended from darkness to the brightest lights of 'em all.
Freed Chilean miner Edison Peña rocked the Big Apple today in a trio of high-profile appearances before his dream dash in the ING New York City Marathon on Sunday.
Three weeks ago the 34-year-old Elvis-loving miner was running endless laps along a 1,000-yard tunnel just to keep his sanity while trapped 2,300 feet below the surface in a collapsed Copiapo gold and copper mine.
And now that tireless love of running brought the 5-foot-5, 145-pound Peña into the spotlight.
The indomitable Peña charmed the audience at the "Late Show with David Letterman."
He treated them to an impromptu version of "Suspicious Minds" - joined by Paul Shaffer and band -- between talking about the harrowing days through an interpreter.
He talked about finding solace in listening to Elvis on a specially-delivered MP3 player while being stuck for 69 days.
