Celebrate Elvis' Love of Gospel During Elvis Week

The King of Rock 'n' Roll had a soft spot in his heart for gospel music.


Elvis Presley loved and performed many styles of music, including the blues, rock 'n' roll and country. But his favorite genre of music was gospel. He recorded several gospel records - in fact, his three GRAMMY Awards are for his gospel recordings, included gospel songs in his concert setlists and enjoyed late-night gospel jams with the quartets that sang with him.


At Elvis Week 2018, we're celebrating the king's love for gospel with several events. Learn more about them below.


Listening Party for "Where No One Stands Alone" Album Release featuring Lisa Marie Presley

1:00 PM, Saturday, August 11, Graceland Soundstage, Elvis Presley’s Memphis. $30

Join Lisa Marie Presley for an exclusive launch party for the new “Where No One Stands Alone” gospel album. Celebrate this “once in a lifetime” moment with Lisa Marie as we listen to this powerful and emotional duet with her father of the album’s title track for the first time. Lisa Marie, who co-produced the album, will be joined album co-producers Joel Weinshanker and Andy Childs, along with John Jackson (Senior Vice President, A&R, Legacy Recordings/Sony Music Entertainment) to discuss the making of this incredible new album celebrating Elvis’ love for gospel music.
