Elvis Aaron Presley was born during The Great Depression into a poor family in Mississippi. They moved to Memphis during the early fifties, and as a struggling young truck driver, he cut some demos at Sun Studios as a gift for his beloved mother Gladys. These initial songs would become the catalyst that would kick-start the beginnings of a soon to be worldwide superstar unlike the world has ever known.

The folks at RCA Victor knew that this young fellow named Elvis was destined for superstardom. They quickly bought out his contract and signed the legend to a long term deal, forever etching “The King Of Rock And Roll” trademark to his name.

In 1972 after a plethora of chart topping albums and a bevy of number one singles, Elvis Presley continued to build his marquee value even further while returning to his favorite genre of music and recorded the Grammy Award winner “He Touched Me.”

This contemporary gospel and soulful masterwork included some of his most revered recordings like the Bill Gaither title track, Jerry Reed’s “ A Little Thing Called Love” and Dallas Frazier’s classic “He Is My Everything.”

More incredible fame followed as the “He Touched Me” Lp was also was a blockbuster as it rose to the upper rungs of the pop and gospel album charts, proving once again that his career was unlike any other in music history. Filled with more gospel classics like Andre Crouch’s “I’ve Got Confidence” and his heartfelt rendition of “Amazing Grace”, “He Touched Me” truly showcases one of Elvis Presley most important recordings.
