Elvis Presley Performs Classic Hymn ‘In The Garden’

Elvis Presley Performs Classic Hymn ‘In The Garden’

The legendary and late entertainer Elvis Presley, who recorded and played a wide range of music, gave a touching and moving performance of one of the most beloved hymns, “In the Garden.”

Elvis Presley, decades after his death, remains a giant in entertainment. The multi-talented star of both stage and screen possessed a charisma not often seen. Wherever he went, screaming, cheering and adoring crowds of fans followed. He helped revolutionize music, combining many different genres. Elvis wasn’t called the “King of Rock and Roll” for nothing.

Not only did Elvis sing the blues, country and rock ‘n’ roll, but he also sang a fair amount of gospel music. A clip posted on YouTube is of Elvis giving a delightful performance of the hymn “In the Garden.” It’s that unmistakable, one-of-a-kind voice belting those memorable and beautiful lyrics.

“And He walks with me, and He talks with me
And He tells me I am His own
And the joy we share as we tarry there
None other has ever known”

In his illustrious career, Elvis turned out one memorable hit song after another. His presence in the music industry still looms large today despite his death in 1977. Performers continue to try and emulate Elvis Presley’s sound and style. 

But no matter how much they may try or how close they get to sounding or looking like Elvis, they will never truly succeed. There will only ever be one Elvis Presley. Not many, if any, performers could have turned in such a moving, emotional and beautiful performance of a hymn that has been heard for generations.

A handful of others who commented on the YouTube clip wholeheartedly agreed with that assessment.

“The one and only Elvis, singing a perfect song,” one person wrote.

“What a voice! That’s so beautiful and comforting! Only Elvis can do justice to this song!” a second individual added.

“Emotional and powerful in the same time!!!! What a voice!!!” a third person posted.
