ELVIS BOUGHT BACK TO LIFE & PERFORMING LIVE WITH CELINE DION!
Have you Seen this Great Hologram of Elvis Performing on ‘Idol Gives Back?’
The song ‘If I can Dream’ was written by Walter Brown and again made famous by the one and only Elvis Presley.
Presley recorded the song in June 1968 and was released by Elvis’s music publishing company Gladys Music not long after it was recorded.
Although not technically a Gospel song, Elvis would regularly perform the song with such great intensity and inspiration, that it later become semi classified as Gospel and has been added to many of his Gospel Compilations.
The Song has direct quotations from Martin Luther King Jr. an American Baptist minister who was the leader for the Civil Rights movement. Now at a time when ‘there must be peace and understanding, the message in the lyrics couldn’t be more relevant. The song was released 2 months afters the famous assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. On the 4th of April 1968, as he stood on his Motels second floor balcony.
The recording of the song was released to the public as the finale of Elvis’s 1968 comeback special.
This video of Elvis and Celine featured on American Idol’s Charity event ‘Idol Gives Back’ in 2007.
Celine Dion a French-Canadian pop singer, is almost as famous as Elvis. Having won 5 Grammy Awards and being ‘one of the best selling artists of all time’, selling over 200 million albums world wide. She’s had multiple International number one hits including “The power of Love”, “My Heart Will Go On”, “Its all coming back to me now”, “Because you Loved Me” and many many more.
It was only fitting that Celine Dion got to sing along side the King.
The performance had mixed reviews but we still loved it here at ElvisPresleyFanPage.
