New Graceland Blog - Elvis' Gospel

There are not many rock ‘n’ roll stars who also created incredible gospel music, but then again, there is only one Elvis Presley.

Elvis shook the world with his infectious brand of rock ‘n’ roll, but he also took the world to church with his beautiful, soulful gospel music. Elvis loved sacred music as much as he loved soul, country and rock – maybe even more so.

The first songs he ever sang were gospel songs at church in Tupelo, Mississippi, and he never stopped singing those hymns. He recorded gospel albums, sprinkled a few of his favorite hymns into his rock ‘n’ roll concerts and loved to sing old-time spirituals with his friends. His vast personal record collection included hundreds of gospel albums by the likes of the Blackwood Brothers, The Stamps Quartet, Mahalia Jackson and The Statesmen Quartet.

Read the rest of the Graceland Blog and learn more about Elvis' gospel music and the accolades he received for them.
