We’re taking the “gospel singings” that Elvis loved so much and adding a tropical spin. We’ll celebrate one of Elvis’ favorite styles of music with one of his favorite gospel groups. Live on stage will be former members of the group J.D. Sumner and The Stamps Quartet. The group was featured prominently in the concert and album “Aloha from Hawaii.” Joining them that morning will be Terry Mike Jeffrey, Andy Childs, Jamie Aaron Kelley and lots of surprises. It will be a magical morning Elvis fans will be talking about for years to come.
