I'm a fan of both Elvis and gospel music, and I even have many Elvis gospel songs on my iPod.

What really stood out to me was what a tower of faith Elvis really was. Although he traveled the world and became a larger than life figure, he really was true to his roots, especially the religious roots instilled in him by his beloved mother, Gladys. Whether he was warming up before a show, in the recording studio, on the set, Elvis sang gospel music. He also integrated it into most of his shows, and
Brief, pleasant memoir about working w/ Elvis during his early 'Vegas' years ('69-'71) and his love of gospel music.
Short book. The writing was good and the stories told were very interesting. I've always enjoyed Elvis' music and this book offered excellent insight into his relationship with gospel music, the genre he loved most throughout his entire life. I've hunted down a few of his gospel CDs since starting the book. I can see why Elvis loved these songs.

This fairly brief biography of Elvis Presley emphasizes his love of Gospel music and his deep seeded faith. Moscheo tells many personal stories of his experiences with the King and Elvis’ life is shown in a light not often depicted by others. Interesting read for both Elvis and Gospel fans.
An interesting read concerning the gospel world rather than the rock-and-roll world that Elvis was a part of. This is one of the more positive accounts of Elvis' life out there. Nice behind-the-scene stories and accounts of several of the top gospel groups from the 60's and the 70's.
Sue Watson
excellent book for anyone that enjoys Elvis. it does not dish dirt but honestly tells about this side of the Mann who loved gospel and was influenced by it.
This book tells the story of Elvis' love of gospel music very nicely.
