Just A Little Talk With Jesus
Written by Cleavant Derricks
Recorded by Elvis December 4 1956

“Gospel music is the purest thing there is on this earth,” Elvis Presley once said.

His voice was a gift from God. He believed in the Bible and loved singing gospel music, especially the traditional southern hymns.

“We do two shows a night for five weeks. A lotta times we’ll go upstairs and sing until daylight - gospel songs. We grew up with it...It more or less puts your mind at ease. It does mine,” Elvis said

Many of Elvis Presley’s backup singers were gospel quartets including the Imperials. From 1956 to 1970, the legendary gospel group, The Jordanaires performed alongside Elvis. Of all the music Elvis knew and loved, it was the gospel quartets that touched him so deeply. The Jordanaires were among Elvis' favorites. Their music was spirited and black-influenced, very much in keeping with Elvis's tastes.

With all the songs he performed during his career, Elvis won just three Grammys.

Those three wins were for gospel recordings: "How Great Thou Art" (1967) album, "He Touched Me" (1972) album, and his Live Memphis Concert recording of "How Great Thou Art" (1974).
