When Elvis performs the songs, you can feel the emotion in his voice.
It is such an incredible song that has a Gospel Music feeling to it, that we just love.
It is because of this Gospel feeling that when Elvis sings it, it sounds so angelic.
When You’re weary, feeling small
When tears are in your eyes I will dry them all
I’m on your site, oh, When times get rough
And friends just can’t be found…
The Kings voice will never die, it sounds to angelic.
Watch and be hypnotised by the great performer.
