Tomorrow night Elvis will be introduced into the Gospel Music Hall Of Fame. EPE added Lisa Marie's letter of acknowledgment that will be read at tomorrow night's ceremony:
"Gospel music was a major part of Elvis Presley's life, both personally and professionally. Some of his finest work is embodied in his gospel recordings - work that brought him and generations of his fans - myself included - a great amount of joy, comfort and inspiration. He felt a calling to reach out to others in this way, using his fame in other fields to bring gospel music to new audiences. In doing so, he made a profound contribution to the industry, which you are recognizing so beautifully and appropriately tonight.
I know how much his being inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame would mean to him and I wish he could be there to enjoy receiving this wonderful honor. I join all our family and friends and all my father's loyal fans in thanking you. I'm deeply proud of my father and I'm so proud to see his work in gospel music receive this great recognition.
Thank you and God bless you all.
Lisa Marie Presley"
