"This documentary is the most enlightening and informative look at the REAL Elvis Presley that I have ever seen! It tells so much more about the MAN than any other documentary, book, magazine, etc. has ever told about the IMAGE. Elvis once said that "It's hard to live up to an image.", and although he's been captured by society as the "image" of the "King of Rock 'N Roll" (watch this DVD to find out what he has to say about that!), there was so much more to him than simply his "image". He was a man who loved God, loved gospel music, and had a deep, genuine faith. This DVD captures the essence of the REAL Elvis, allowing fans and spectators alike to see more of who he really was, how he really felt, and what he really valued than anything that's ever been produced about him before. If you like Elvis, you'll LOVE this DVD! If you think you know Elvis, you need to watch this DVD! If you love God and HIS music, you need to get this DVD so you can enjoy the enormous talent and soul-felt performances by the legendary Elvis Presley as he sings about his God and his faith! Elvis was a man blessed of God with a tremendous talent and a world of opportunitiy to share it in, but he was also a man who was imprisoned by his fame, and tortured by the loneliness that this caused. He wasn't perfect, but he was blessed, and he knew it. Watch this DVD to see how real his faith was to him, and how desperately he leaned on it to make it through the difficult days of his "Fame and Fortune", his days of "Hurt", and his struggles as he sought "Peace in the Valley". This is a wonderful documentary! Don't miss it! Get yours today!"
Powerful and emotional unique look at the King.

"I have always loved Elvis' Gospel music. This DVD shows an indepth look into the Spiritual life of Elvis and his love and longing to love the Lord. I found the interviews to be very inspiring and hopeful for Elvis' salvation. One interview with one of the Sweet Inspirations tells of Elvis and praying and laying hands for healing on one of the girls because she had an tumor which she was healed of.
Any fan of E who wants to know the deepest workings of the man must have this DVD to understand him and trials. One book quotes his aunt believing Elvis did all his drugs because of the guilt of his life style. With that said remember these things Elvis died reading Insearch of the Face of Jesus and the King of Rock and Roll won 3 Grammies ALL for GOSPEL music!!! GOD bless you all JB"

"I think Elvis gospels are great. The problem with this nice DVD is that it's filled for more than 50% of people who are talking about Elvis. The one thing I did not like was that the songs, which I think are the most important, are cut into pieces with people who are talking about Elvis. There is no way that you can listen and see Elvis perform without the talking. For the diehards it's a real must, but for me who like the songs the most, will give this DVD away."
An excellent look at Elvis' often overlooked spiritual side

"I caught this biography on my local PBS station. I was almost moved to tears, as He Touched Me brought to life the spirituality and faith of Elvis Presley. Here was not the Elvis of the tabloids or the Elvis of popular assumption. Here was an Elvis that was entirely down-to-earth, a man who performed and sang with real conviction and real faith behind his words. As told in the biography, Elvis once stopped a concert midway to point out to screaming fans in the first row that, despite their sign proclaiming him King, he was not, and that God was. He Touched Me is full of inspiring revelations of the Elvis we all think we know."
