Music and church bring me peace. I love the music performed at mass. My affinity with music began with church and the choir. I sang for several years in the choir. I loved that connection with my faith. I still do as it centers me each week.
Elvis Presley is my favorite Gospel artist. His love for church hymns is inspirational. I saw a video with him singing Gospel songs backstage with the Jordanaires years ago. He was never happier in those collaborative moments.
Where No One Stands Alone provides new musical perspectives on 14 of the singer’s favorite pieces of gospel music, from the reverential to the celebratory, with song selections including Presley’s beloved enduring gospel classics. The expected ship date for this recording is August 8, 2018.
“Since I was two years old,” Elvis Presley once said, “all I knew was gospel music. It became such a part of my life, it was as natural as dancing. A way to escape my problems, and my way of release.” It was Elvis’ explosive mix of styles–blues, bluegrass, country, swing, pop–that generated his iconic world-changing rock n’ roll, but it was the hymns, spirituals and church music of his childhood, the deep-seated gospel roots that sustained Elvis and his musical vision throughout his life.
“This was his favorite genre – no question about it,” says Lisa Marie in her album notes. “He seemed at his most passionate, and at peace while singing gospel. He would truly come alive – whether he was singing just for himself and me at home, or on stage in front of thousands of fans.”
