Cover of Elvis: 30 #1 Hits

From Elvis: 30 #1 Hits and 146 other releases

“Crying in the Chapel” is a song written by Artie Glenn for his son Darrell to sing.

On October 30, 1960, Elvis Presley recorded a version of the song during the sessions for his RCA Records gospel album, His Hand in Mine. It was not included on that album, but rather was held back by RCA and finally released as an “Easter Special” single (447-0643) in April 1965, hitting number three on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and topping the Easy Listening chart for six weeks, the greatest chart success for Presley over a six-year span. It was later included as a bonus track on Presley’s 1967 gospel album, How Great Thou Art. The single was eventually certified “Platinum” by the RIAA for sales in excess of one million units in the US.
