Elvis Presley (1935 – 1977) might be remembered for causing controversy for being accused of singing “the devil's music”. Yet the only music he performed that he ever him won a Grammy award for was gospel music. He insisted on making the album even though the record producers objected strenuously. Many people who find comfort in listening to Christian hymns will often mention the name of a song they heard which was sung by “the King” and say: “I really love that song.” No doubt Elvis loved the song too and found great comfort in singing it to honor his God.

Must have been exciting. I have never seen a live performance. Now that you mention it, I don't remember him ever coming to Miami, Florida for a concert. We had lots of concerts in Miami!

@cmoneyspinner - Live music is the best! You really owe it to yourself to go.I have probably seen close to 200 bands. I had a good time during every one of them.

He objected to being called "the King," too. He said, "There's only one King, and that's Jesus."

Yes. That sounds like something he would say.

Once he made an appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show and had promised his mom he would sing a particular song on the program. The folks running the show didn't want him to, but he insisted. He said he had to! He promised his mom he would. So they let him sing it! (I collect entertainment tidbits and trivia about stuff like that.) Elvis Presley always struck me as a humble ordinary everyday guy with a huge talent who never felt quite comfortable with being a celebrity.
