The Gospel According to Elvis Show is a concert featuring Gary Gibson as The King, performing some of the star’s best-loved spiritual songs.

Organised by St John’s Church, Newtownbreda, Belfast, the show will be appearing there on Thursday October 23.

“It was no secret Elvis was a spiritual man who loved gospel music,” said musical director Crawford Bell. “In fact three of his 14 Grammy nominations which appear in the show were for gospel recordings You’ll Never Walk Alone, He touched Me and How Great Thou Art.”

In the show singer Gary Gibson takes to the stage in what has been described by producers as “a powerful portrayal of Elvis” in an “unforgettable night of iconic music”.

Gary will be joined by the Bellaire Singers and Crawford Bell and The Memphis Showband.

“When Crawford got in contact with me at the beginning of the year to talk about the idea of an Elvis gospel show I thought it was a great idea,” said Gary. “For me this was a new concept and a road not yet travelled in Ireland or the UK so we began working on a list of songs.

“I think what sets this show apart from others is the fact that it will give a lot of people a chance to see another side of Elvis.”

Tickets (£12.50) are available by calling Olive (028 9064 6292), Hilary (077 0875 7165) or Ian (075 9032 8622)
