Elvis Presley reveals his spiritual side, singing pure gospel songs that spoke to him, including "How Great Thow Art," "Crying in the Chapel," "Amazing Grace," "Bosom of Abraham," and "This Time, You Gave Me a Mountain." Intimate glimpses of the King's life with friends are seen, as they sing together. Those who worked with him, including Myrna Smith (The Sweet Inspirations) and Ray Walker (The Jordanaires), speak eloquently of Elvis' faith and of his roots relating to gospel; and how he fought racism to keep his back-up singers on stage with him. Band member Tony Brown reveals that, for Presley, singing gospel music was his way of worshipping God, since his celebrity prevented him from attending church. Record executives were surprised when the Grammys overlooked Presley's No. 1 hits in favor of three of his best gospel performances. Newscaster Sander Vanocur narrates the program, which was produced after Elvis' death.
