Elvis Birthday 8th January 1965

Happy Birthday Elvis!


(picture top) Elvis shown wearing the (picture under) Tree of life pendant given to Elvis by some of his friends on his 30th birthday. 

This pendant was designed as a family tree. It had Elvis Presley engraved along the trunk and the names, Billy Smith, Harry Levitch, Alan Fortas, Joe Esposito, Richard Davis, Mike Keeton, Marty Lacker, forming the limbs intersecting with the letters on the trunk, further inscribed with the verse “like a tree planted by the water that bringeth forth fruit in his season”, ( this is from Psalm 1 part of verse 3, the rest of the verse is “his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.”) 

The pendant is dated January 8th 1965, the reverse engraved “And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free” in English, Hebrew and Latin  (taken from the Bible - John 8:32)

It was made in 10 karat gold suspended from a rope chain.

The design was conceived by Marty Lacker and Elvis cherished this pendant and wore it until the time of his death.

Welcome Home!

Dear Wonderful Fans of Elvis.

As we remember the passing of this beautiful man, with his amazing voice, let's also remember that it was not the end for him on 16th August 1977, but rather the beginning of a life without sorrow, disease or conflict. I believe that Elvis is now enjoying everlasting life with his heavenly father, because of his belief and faith in what Jesus did for him, and all of us, on the cross of Calvary. I fully expect to be able to spend time with Elvis when I leave this mortal body. How about you? I hope that as you continue to listen to the gospel songs that Elvis sang, you will grow closer to the Lord Jesus and know that peace which passes all understanding, the shalom of God.

Celebrate Elvis Week!

To Elvis fans everywhere, have a wonderful "Elvis Week", however you are celebrating. ("Oh to be in Memphis now that Elvis Week is here!) 
We are sorry that we will not be there but will be remembering with great thanksgiving that beautiful man, Elvis, with his wonderful voice.
 Perhaps we can follow the lead of Elvis and Lisa Marie shown above and send up a prayer, a prayer of thanksgiving. "Thank you Lord for Elvis Presley, the king of rock'nroll and for Jesus, the King of Kings."

Elvis' favourite birthday present?

Elvis is seen here wearing the lions head Jaycees pendant, giving his acceptance speech for this award. He received the notice of this award the day after is 36th birthday- a wonderful belated birthday surprise!

Thanks to David English and David Troedson of "Elvis Australia" for this report of the event: 

On January 16, 1971 Elvis attended a day of functions culminating in an evening awards banquet where he and nine others accepted the honour of being named 'one of the Ten Outstanding Young Men of the Nation ' by the United States Junior Chamber of Commerce (The Jaycees).
Elvis was nervous about his acceptance speech. He was touched, excited and deeply proud. After a two-thousand-dollar-a-plate dinner and a speech byfuture President George H.W. Bush, Elvis gives his address, in which he quotes a favorite Roy Hamilton R&B tune, 'Without A Song':
'When I was a child, ladies and gentlemen, I was a dreamer. I read comic books, and I was the hero of the comic book.
I saw movies, and I was the hero in the movie. So every dream I ever dreamed has come true a hundred times. These gentlemen over there, these are the type who care, are dedicated. You realize if it's not possible that they might be building the Kingdom, it's not far-fetched from reality. I learned very early in life that: ‘Without a song, the day would never end; without a song, a man ain't got a friend; without a song, the road would never bend, without a song', So I keep singing a song. Goodnight. Thank you'.
This national honour has been given each year since the late 1930's and recognizes young men who have made great achievements in their field of endeavour, illustrating the opportunities available in the free enterprise system. It also applauds humanitarianism and community service. Scientists, inventors, performers, film makers, politicians bound for the Presidency, and men of greatness in all fields, have been selected for this award over the years, including John F . Kennedy, Robert F . Kennedy, Orson Welles, Howard Hughes.

Have a great celebration of Elvis77th Birthday, not forgetting to thank the Lord for the life of this wonderful man, Elvis Aaron Presley

Christmas Greetings

Elvis would have loved this!
As we know he did not like being called the king and often responded that there is only one King and he is Jesus Christ.

From us all at Elvis Gospel we wish you a wonderful, joyful peaceful Christmas celebration, remembering that Jesus is the reason for the season!
