According to Priscilla, Elvis gave a performance of this song that was full of heart and soul

This is Elvis at his finest. We need this today more than ever. Thank you Elvis your Timeless!

Elvis Presley’s 1968 “Black Leather” comeback special is a seminal moment in rock and roll history. The King had been away from live performances for seven years, focusing on his movie career and watching as the Beatles and other British Invasion bands took over the charts. With this televised concert, Elvis proved that he was still the top-dog of rock and roll.

One of the most powerful moments of the concert was when Elvis performed “If I Can Dream” with a full orchestra. Dressed all in black, with a leather jacket and pants, Elvis belted out the song with all the passion and conviction of a man who had been through the ringer and come out the other side. The song’s message of hope and unity resonated with audiences, and it became an immediate classic.

The performance of “If I Can Dream” was a turning point for Elvis. It showed that he was more than just a pretty face and a set of gyrating hips – he was a true musician with a voice that could move people to tears. The song went on to become one of his signature tunes, and it remains a fan favorite to this day.

In many ways, the “Black Leather” comeback special marked the beginning of a new era for Elvis. He would go on to record some of his best music in the late 60s and early 70s, exploring new genres like country and gospel while still staying true to his rock and roll roots. But no matter what kind of music he was making, Elvis always gave it his all – just like he did in that unforgettable performance of “If I Can Dream.”
