The Gospel Side of Elvis

The Blackwood Family is the first family of Gospel Music, winning 8 Grammy Awards, 27 Dove Awards, and have sold over 60 million albums. They have performed in over 47 countries, and have been inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame. Millions were privileged to hear The Blackwood Brothers sing in The Johnny Cash movie, “I Walk The Line”.
Elvis idolized the Blackwood family and wanted to sing with them. He was given that opportunity after the crash that killed RW Blackwood, but Elvis had already signed a contract with Sun Records and was unable to sing with them. He insisted on the Blackwood Brothers Quartet singing at his mother’s funeral and they later sang at Elvis’ own funeral.
Millions still love and adore the memories of Elvis Presley today. The Blackwood Quartet is carrying on the memory of Elvis with this amazing “The Gospel Side of Elvis” concert and are so very pleased that award winning ETA Roger Anderson from Seattle, WA will be joining them on this tour.
