"He Touched Me: The Gospel Music of Elvis Presley" Volumes I and II feature more than thirty of Elvis's Gospel recordings and never-before-seen footage. This 3-hour collection is filled with personal stories by those who knew him well, goes behind the scenes of Elvis's career. Discover how Elvis was dramatically influenced by two of Southern Gospel music's premiere quartets, The Statesmen and the Blackwood Brothers. Learn of the controversy surrounding his performance of Peace in the Valley on The Ed Sullivan Show. Even hear the surprising story behind the recording of his signature hymn, How Great Thou Art.
Elvis is known for being the King of Rock 'n Roll, but there was, in fact, a spiritual side to him. Some of his later pop hits were definitely tinged with a gospel feel, but on this amazing release, Elvis performs over thirty pure gospel songs. Along with beautifully moving performances, HE TOUCHED ME also provides insight into the King's life and personality. In interviews with friends, Elvis becomes a more fully formed man, emerging from the two-dimensional caricature that the general public will recognize.
