  • Fun Faith Fact!: Elvis once said "The only king is Jesus Christ"

The versatile voice and stage moves of Elvis Presley brought rock and roll to the mainstream, never forgetting his other roots - gospel. Elvis is a figure who transcends his time to have a legacy all his own. He was first caught by music as young person in Mississippi growing up in an Assembly of God church. Through his career Elvis would reference his faith, noting that he didn't like to be called the king as to him, Jesus Christ was king. His gospel records may be influenced by the secular sound he helped to make famous, but they are as touching as any similar recordings coming out at the time.
