He Touched Me: The Gospel Music of Elvis Presley

Thank You Gifts

The intensity of Elvis Presley's love and devotion for gospel music is revealed in the documentary He Touched Me: The Gospel Music of Elvis Presley. Narrated by veteran newscaster Sander Vanocur, the special will be pledge tested on several public televisions in December 2002. Presley's story is told with vintage photos, interviews and video footage, including some never-before-available scenes of Elvis's impromptu offstage gospel performances. Many interviews reveal that Presley's unshakable commitment to gospel music was tested many times by producers and record label executives, who were later to be surprised when the Grammys overlooked Presley's No. 1 hits in favor of three of his best gospel performances.
