We were privileged to hear Michael Glaysher sing one evening at the Fishermen's Chapel Gospel Vespers and were immediately struck by his talent and his rendition of the Elvis gospel songs. Michael Glaysher is a young Elvis Presley tribute singer, who has won competitions in Memphis and the UK. He has made many local appearances, returned to sing at Graceland during the Summer and recently undertook a tour of Holland. He has further local appointments and then in March he will star as Elvis in a Sun Record Company production at the Cliffs Pavilion featuring many of the great musical acts of the 50's and 60's. This production will then go on tour.
Michael has a voice that uncannily resembles that of the "King of Rock 'n Roll" and dares, at the end of his set, to play an original Elvis recording of How Great Thou Art. If you were unsure of your performance you would not dare to do that – but Michael gets away with it..
When he visited Highlands to check out the venue before the night of the performance Michael was gracious enough to pop in to see the MENCAP Showstoppers in action in the Church Hall. They were thrilled and Michael was happy to pose for photographs with the students. He is a genuine man and should go far. We look forward to hearing more of his talented voice.
