Elvis: The Gospel Side

Posted in music by adeli on August 11, 2009

Growing up, Elvis knew everything about gospel music and it was the type of music he enjoyed singing the most. He was very spiritual, and you can tell by listening to his inspirational and religious songs. They weren’t all serious songs though; many were uplifting and upbeat, as lively gospel revivals were a huge form of entertainment in the South during the 50’s.

Below are a few of my favorite gospel songs performed by Elvis:

Swing Down Sweet Chariot

(There’ll Be) Peace in the Valley (For Me)

Milky White Way

I’ve Got Confidence

Crying in the Chapel

Amazing Grace
