Over the years, Elvis Presley had a number of backing singers, including The Sweet Inspirations. The group who sung with The King, including his Las Vegas residencies, featured Whitney Houston’s mother Cissy. And now another former member Estelle Brown has revealed in a new interview how she believes Elvis is still around as an angel.
Speaking with Spa Guy in Nashville, Tennessee, Estelle spoke of how at first she thought the opposite of Elvis.
The singer who has performed with Van Morrison, Aretha Franklin, Jimi Hendrix and Dusty Springfield said: “He was a Rock and Roll singer and we were gospel singers, so it did not coincide, it didn’t fit. We thought it didn’t fit.
“And then from how we were raised church-wise, that was the devil’s music.
“You couldn’t sing the devil’s music because if you did you were going to hell.”

She added: “And he continues to. They say Elvis has left the building. No he hasn’t!
“He’s still here because as long as we’re here and we’re keeping him going, he’s here.
“I always say, ‘God I thank you and Elvis I thank you too!’”
Meanwhile, The King’s ex-wife Priscilla has spoken of how she senses his “spirit” at Graceland.
