Elvis Presley - 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 1965 Top 5 smash "Crying In The Chapel," "How Great Thou Art,"
"You'll Never Walk Alone"), praise-filled gospel-rockers (Jerry Lieber and Mike
Stoller's "Saved") and traditional hymns and spirituals ("So High," "Stand By
Me," "In The Garden," "Amazing Grace").
Elvis Presley once said, "Since I was two years old, 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.
Friends and family would often recall hearing Elvis sing gospel tunes at home
and to warm up before concerts. "We do two shows a night for five weeks,"
Presley said in an interview featured in the documentary Elvis On Tour, recorded
during one of his residencies at the International Hotel in Las Vegas. "A
lotta times we'll go upstairs and sing until daylight—gospel songs. We grew up
with it…It more or less puts your mind at ease. It does mine."
"This was his favorite genre – no question about it," says Lisa Marie in
her album notes. "He seemed to be 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."
