"Tears of a King: The Latter Days of Elvis" Premiere!
The premiere was held last night at the Scera Theater in Orem, Utah, with members of the cast and crew in attendance. The house was packed and the movie well-received with loud applause.
Alan Osmond talked about some of his experiences with Elvis, and he told the story of how he received a copy of the Book of Mormon which Elvis had read and marked. This book is now in the LDS church archives and pages from it were used in the movie.
Michael Osmond also attended the event. He was credited for sharing the Osmond family’s connection to the story with producer Matthew Reese, and putting Reese in contact with Alan.
Matt Lewis, who plays Elvis in the film, gave a concert after the premiere. Soundtrack CDs were available to purchase after the event.
In a special nod to Alan and the Osmond family, listen for a clip from The Plan (Traffic in My Mind) when Elvis is struggling with the effects of fame on his life.
