Elvis Presley’s Electrifying Gospel Performance of ‘Oh Happy Day’ Will Bring You To Your Knees! (WATCH)

Any gospel song that Elvis Presley performed was always an instant hit. There was just something about the way he presented himself and performed each inspirational song with his heart on his sleeve, pouring his emotions into every word, making anyone who watched want to reach up to Heaven.
