Where No One Stands Alone – Elvis Presley [Live]JesusDaily PH
A live recording with vocals and piano from Elvis Presley at his concert in Montgomery, Alabama on February 16th 1977.
“Where No On Stands Alone” is a beautiful gospel song that Elvis recorded at the legendary RCA Studio B, Nashville, Tennessee in May 1966 for his Grammy award winning album “How Great Thou Art”, released in 1967. (N.B. Please ignore the original video text that forgets this information)
This live recording, exactly 6 months before his death aged just 42, is one of the most poignant moments on stage in Elvis’ career. From nowhere, Elvis decided to sit at the piano, and perform this old gospel number for the one and only time on stage. Totally unrehearsed, it appears that his band and backing singers either couldn’t remember the song or didn’t know it at all.
Elvis launches into an impassioned effort, despite his failing health and delivers a performance and lyric that struck a resonance with his current situation that is impossible to ignore. With his life and career seemingly slipping away from him, Elvis seemed a broken and lost man, a victim of his own unprecedented success. The only place he knew to turn to was God, and that night, on that stage, he sung his heart out, in a cry for help.
1. God is always with you.
2. God knows what you need before you even ask.
3. I pray you are aware of his presence in your life today.
I hope Jesus Daily is helping you to focus on Jesus today.
Please share this story if you would like to help someone else know God’s presence.
