New film to highlight mystery of Elvis’ faith

Who will release the first Hollywood biographical movie about Elvis Presley? According to the Hollywood Reporter, four productions are in the works — and one of them, The Identical, focuses on the elusive question of Presley’s faith.

Elvis Presley, 1959

Worldwide, the enigmatic Presley sold over one billion records, more than any other artist, according to the website BiographyElvis. He won multiple gold and platinum awards for 131 albums and singles — far more than any other artist. Nominated 14 times for Grammy awards, he only won three — all for Gospel recordings: the album “How Great Thou Art” in 1967, the album “He Touched Me” in 1972 and his live Memphis concert recording of the song “How Great Thou Art” in 1974.

Patsy Davis in Charlotte, N.C. I would be THRILLED to have a movie about Elvis’ love of gospel songs. His songs are beautiful and I think this is a wonderful idea.

I am a christian radio prdeocur in a small country. i do have access in buying some christian music but in order to keep up with finding some cd’s (especially old ones) and in order to be updated with what’s new and how it sounds, Christian Sonic has been more than helpful in order to give more and more promotion to Christian bands and artists. Of course being a non-profit internet radio we don’t have the budget to purchase enough cd’s for our radio and also, most labels aren’t feeling sure to share with us their new stuff. So i would be more than grateful if you could give me some directions in how to continue being supplied of christian music.Thank you in advance and GodBless!!!
