The intensity of Elvis Presley's love and devotion for gospel music is revealed in the documentary He Touched Me: The Gospel Music of Elvis Presley. Narrated by veteran newscaster Sander Vanocur, the special will be pledge tested on several public televisions in December 2002. Presley's story is told with vintage photos, interviews and video footage, including some never-before-available scenes of Elvis's impromptu offstage gospel performances. Many interviews reveal that Presley's unshakable commitment to gospel music was tested many times by producers and record label executives, who were later to be surprised when the Grammys overlooked Presley's No. 1 hits in favor of three of his best gospel performances.

Joe Bonamassa has been more influenced by the impact of British Blues than by any other music out there. From a young age, the musically inclined Joe fell in love with the hard-rocking, gritty and edgy sound that emanated from mid-1960’s Britain. This is especially true of the highly innovative and evocative guitar music produced by three of the field’s greatest heavyweights, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page. With the deepest reverence for what these three men have accomplished and a true love of their music, Joe is beyond thrilled to be launching a new show this summer: Joe Bonamassa Live in Concert: A Salute to the British Blues Explosion.
