The King Elvis Presley sings a duet with her daughter Lisa Marie Presley on his latest album, and it's remarkable.
A groundbreaking new Elvis album, "Where No One Stands Alone," was released on August 10, 2018, to celebrate the king of rock & roll's everlasting love of gospel music.
The title track of the album features Lisa Marie duetting with her father's vocals from a song that was initially released in 1967. The two have perfect harmony, and their voices blend very well together.

Published on August 8, 2018, the tear-jerking music video of the song, "Where No One Stands Alone," shows their never-before-seen family photos and clips.
The 14 songs on the album take Elvis's gospel recordings and combine with newly-recorded instrumentation and backing vocals from other singers that includes Darlene Love and Cissy Houston.
In the compilation's liner notes, Lisa Marie wrote: "It was a very powerful and moving experience to sing with my father."
"The lyrics speak to me and touch my soul. I’m certain that the lyrics spoke to my father in much the same way."
Lisa Marie also shared her experiences with Elvis's love of gospel music in the notes.
"This was his favorite genre – no question about it," she wrote. "He seemed to be at his most passionate, and at peace while singing gospel. He would truly come alive – whether he was singing just for himself and me at home, or on stage in front of thousands of fans."
When the mother-of-four appeared on the British talk show, "Lorraine," she revealed that she still asks her father for help more than 40 years after he passed away.
"I wouldn't say I talk to him. I just remember everything. I can sort of pull out of the files whatever memories I have and stuff like that," she said. "And occasionally ask for help. Which was the case with this record. I just felt like a hand came down to me, it felt like that a little bit."
The song, "Where No One Stands Alone," was a way for Lisa Marie to feel closer to her father especially during the times in her life when she needed him the most.
In 1997, Lisa Marie also put on a digital combination of their voices during a special event.
A music video of the singer-songwriter and her father performing a duet of "Don’t Cry Daddy" was presented at the tribute concert that marked the 20th anniversary of Elvis's death.
Lisa Marie, who was married four times, including to the late King of Pop Michael Jackson, and actor Nicolas Cage, is the only child of Elvis and actress Priscilla Presley. She is the sole heir to the king's estate.
