The intensity of Elvis Presley's love and devotion for gospel music is revealed in this documentary. Narrated by veteran newscaster Sander Vanocur, 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.
