Crying in the Chapel

This song reached number one on the R&B charts. The Elvis Presley version was number three on the Billboard Hot 100 charts and number one in England. Other recordings, including the original which was sung by the author's son, were big hits in Country Western, Gospel and Ella Fitzgerald had great success with a Jazz version. Can you imagine this happening today?
