Bangsar Gospel Centre was rocking on Sunday 21st July to the smooth sounds of Elvis and the hot gyrations of our Seniors. The hall was packed, fed, entertained and happy.
God blesses us all with certain gifts and in the case of brother HT Long, God granted him a great voice. Put together with HT’s lifelong passion for Elvis Presley and his songs and we get Malaysia’s own Elvis Presley.
“Elvis” gave us with song after song from Elvis’ repertoire. He also did some songs by Cliff Richard, Bee Gees and even some Christian songs – all in the way that Elvis would have sung them. He had the crowd, clapping, singing and finally and inevitably on their feet dancing.
HT had a wonderful interaction with the audience and had us laughing with his stories about Elvis and about his own experiences.
I certainly learned much about Elvis that I did not know before especially about how Elvis despite all his problems later in his life, found peace in turning back to God.
HT also shared his own testimony and his journey from being an atheist to a joyful knowledge of Jesus Christ as his living and personal saviour and Lord.
We rejoice too that at least one person made a commitment to Jesus that night.
HT, thanks for a wonderful night of music, laughter and for sharing the Good News. God bless and keep on rocking.
