Our minister of music sang Who Am I during this morning’s service (the Elvis Presley one, not to be confused with a Casting Crown song of the same title). Elvis was known in the 50’s as the King of Rock and Roll and later in his career simply as “the King.” But despite all of his success in music and movies, all three of his Grammy awards were for Gospel music. He sang Peace in the Valley on one of his historic appearances on the Ed Sullivan Show. Back in the day everyone from Andy Griffith to Dolly Parton also recorded Gospel music. Pat Boone, Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash all have Gospel albums.
Try to Imagine Justin Beiber or Miley Cyrus adding a Gospel tract to their next album.
