Fact of the Day: King of Gospel?

Despite being "The King of Rock and Roll" Elvis Presley never won a Grammy in the rock genre. He did win 3 in the gospel category.

I love gospel music, and I think Elvis did an amazing job singing it. He deserved those awards.

I knew that he loved gospel singing and that's really what he wanted to do. I had no idea that he hadn't won Grammy's for his rock music though.

This is intriguing. I can bet it was in his voice, more than in the style he later developed.
