It has not been a good few days for Elvis' soprano backing-singer Kathy Westmoreland who was hospitalised in Los Angeles earlier last week with a health scare. Friends were asking for everyone to please send her prayers and support. However the good news is that her health is improving and that she is feeling somewhat better.
Elvis and Kathy had a similar interest in spiritual matters and they both liked the same kind of books, such as Joel S. Goldsmith's The intimate way and Kahlil Gibran's The impersonal life. According to Kathy, it was Elvis and Kathy singing "How Great Thou Art" together informally that made Elvis decide to put that gospel song into his show. Their relationship became more than just friends ..
