Nashville, TN – Graceland, the historic home of Elvis Presley, was host to an incredible event November 3 – 5, 2021. The Singing News hosted the first-ever Gospel Music-based festival at the Graceland complex to celebrate the music that Elvis loved.

The top names in the genre came together with fans from far and wide to sing and worship the King of Kings at the home of the King of Rock ’N’ Roll.

Thursday and Friday mornings began with Bible studies featuring encouragement from the Word of God and great Gospel Music. Thursday afternoon we hosted a special concert, “The Gospel Side Of Elvis,” featuring Terry Blackwood & The Imperials, Ronnie Booth, The Guardians, and Jonathan Wilburn. This exciting afternoon featured songs sung by Elvis on his Grammy®-winning Gospel albums, humor, and other hits.

The days each ended with three evening concerts at the Sound Stage event center. The concerts featured fan-favorites along with up-and-comers. Each evening opened with great performances by these new groups. Fans loved the music from The Shirah Brothers, Chronicle, Folenius, Sounds Of Jericho, The Music City Quartet, and Real Truth Revival. This great collection of artists and songs got each evening started on the right foot. The evening concerts continued with the music of Karen Peck & New River, Legacy Five, Mark Trammell Quartet, Greater Vision, The Guardians, Emily Ann Roberts, Carolina, Joseph Habedank, The Sound, LeFevre Quartet, Michael Combs, The Hoppers, Isaacs, The Inspirations, Triumphant, Brian Free & Assurance, Jeff & Sheri Easter, and more, led to an invitation each night where the Gospel was clearly presented. Praise the Lord! 29 people accepted Christ as their Savior during these evening concerts. The Grace of God was truly found at the Graceland Gospel Music Festival for these new believers.

The blessings continued as 50 children were sponsored by generous fans through Child Fund. Almost 80 lives were changed through this three day event. Thank you to everyone that supported, attended, subscribed, and watched for helping us to make a real difference in these lives.

The four main events were simulcast on Singing News TV as pay-per-view and live events available to subscribers. These concerts had over 13,000 views on Singing News TV. The Graceland Gospel Music Festival capped off a great launch month for Singing News TV that started with “Live At The Palace With The Inspirations” and “Terry Blackwood And The Imperials.” More great events like these will be exclusive to Singing News TV subscribers and pay-per-view in the coming months.
