Elvis’ 1977 Performance of Gospel Song “Where No One Stands Alone” Left Everyone Wanting More
While Elvis Presley was known for being a rebel, a bad boy, and the “King of Rock and Roll”, it certainly didn’t mean he didn’t have a heart of gold.
Even though many people remember him for his upbeat and fun rock n’ roll songs, his soulful and gracious songs were also loved.
This tribute video below is dedicated to one of Elvis’ slower and more Godly tunes. Elvis said himself, “I believe in the Bible. I believe that all good things come from God. I don’t believe I’d sing the way I do if God hadn’t wanted me to.” This song depicted Elvis perfectly.
In February 1977, he performed the gospel song, “Where No One Stands Alone”. At the time, the song had never been sung live. So when Elvis asked the band members for this special request, even they couldn’t contain the excitement.
Listen to Elvis’ beautiful performance of “Where No One Stands Alone” below:
This choir has children ranging from ages 4-18 and they sound like angels, harmonizing their voices with one another.
It means performing in front of 16 million people on the popular television show ‘America’s got talent’.
He uses an 18 string harp guitar, which is notable for the plucked strings sitting at the top of the guitar. It almost sounds like he has a second guitarist playing with him!
