Elvis Week Day 3 - Celebrating Elvis' Gospel Music

On the third day of Elvis Week, fans lined up to celebrate the new Elvis gospel album, "Where No One Stands Alone," which was released the day before.

Lisa Marie Presley joined her album co-producers Joel Weinshanker and Andy Childs, plus John Jackson of Legacy Recordings/Sony Music Entertainment, for a listening party at the Graceland Soundstage on Saturday. They talked about the making of the album and debuted a 20-minute documentary about Elvis' love of gospel music.

Elvis Week blogger Jon Waterhouse interviewed Childs about the making of the album - read that interview on the Graceland Blog. 

The excitement continued into the evening as three Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest winners, Cody Slaughter, Bill Cherry and Gordon Hendricks, plus finalist Victor Trevino Jr., performed at ELVIS: The Greatest Hits Ultimate Tribute Artist Show.

Trevino thrilled fans with his energetic performance, which included a teddy bear giveaway during, you guessed it, "Teddy Bear." Slaughter saluted Elvis' 68 Special, while Hendricks channeled Elvis' "Aloha from Hawaii" special. Bill Cherry sported a sparkly jumpsuit and performed fan favorites like "Suspicious Minds" and "Can't Help Falling in Love."

The day kicked off with the 36th annual Elvis 5K at Graceland. Hundreds of runners braved the heat and humidity to start the day with a run and plenty of selfies in front of the Graceland gates.
