Photos of "If I Can Dream" Performance Added to Mobile Apps
June 30, 2012
Elvis' "'68 Comeback Special" infused his music career with life after seven years of not performing in front of a live audience. On June 30, 1968, Elvis appeared alone wearing a simple white two-piece suit with the backdrop of red lights that spelled ELVIS and performed the final segment of the 1968 NBC television special. He sang "If I Can Dream," a song written based on Elvis' own thoughts about the turbulent times of the '60s. Written by the show's musical director W. Earl Brown, in response to the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., “If I Can Dream” describes a world full of hope and free of doubt, pain, and fear. This powerful and passionate performance became one of the most brilliant moments of his singing career. To celebrate the anniversary of the taping of "If I Can Dream," we've added photos to our Elvis Mobile 2.0 iPhone app
