Gospel music performed by ‘Elvis’ at the Sid

Friday, March 20 at the Sid Williams Theatre 7:30 p.m

The Gospel Concert How Great Thou Art is a two-hour concert that celebrates the only awards and Grammies that Elvis would ever receive, performed by multi-award-winning vocalist and internationally renowned tribute performer Steve Elliott.

Elliott is a Nanaimo-born singer, residing on the Mainland.

In his portrayal of these sacred songs, he gives the audience the performance Elvis never could.

Elvis wanted to be a Gospel singer and never had the chance to perform a full Gospel concert. With his smooth but powerful voice, Steve performs these songs with an incredible accuracy that will thrill any Elvis fan.

Crying in the Chapel,  Amazing Grace and faster upbeat tempo songs like Swing Down Sweet Chariot and By and By are in the repertoire, as well as How Great Thou Art, and Trilogy.

Fans of Comox Nautical Days will be familiar with the performer, as Elliott has been a headliner at the annual August long weekend festival for the past eight years.

“It’s going to be some good old-time religion,” says Elliott. “Elvis never had the opportunity to perform his true heart’s desire in concert… I am truly honoured and blessed to share this concert with his fans.”

The concert goes Friday, March 20 at the Sid Williams Theatre 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $27.50 pp. All ages welcome. Call 250-338-2430 for advance sales.
