When Elvis Presley saw these historical figures’ faces in a cloud, he cried.
Elvis Presley left behind more than just a wonderful repertoire of hit songs; he also had a wild life. For example, when the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll saw two historical people’ faces in the sky, he cried. Here’s how he reacted to it, as well as a look at two songs he wrote as a result of it.
When Elvis Presley witnessed a cloud fashioned like a tyrant’s face transform into the face of a religious figure, he cried.
Elvis Presley was reportedly driving toward Hollywood with his hair stylist Larry Geller riding shotgun, according to Paul Guralnick’s book Careless Love: The Unmaking of Elvis Presley. His posse’s other members were in the back of the automobile. In the cloud, he noticed Joseph Stalin’s visage.
It changed into the visage of Jesus Christ shortly after that. Geller talked about how he and Elvis felt about the shift. “Every fiber of my being felt it when he smiled at me,” he recalled.

As he cried, Elvis Presley muttered something to Larry Geller.
Elvis appeared to be really pleased and at ease. Geller would never see him look the same way again. The singer was perplexed as to why the cloud resembled Stalin. He assumed it had anything to do with him. He began crying and clutching Geller. Elvis said, “For the first time in my life, God and Christ are a live reality.”
Elvis Presley was heard repeatedly saying, “Oh, God, Oh, God,” according to Gellar. “Then he paused and added an odd aside – ‘Can you imagine what the fans would think if they saw me like this?’” says the author. Geller recalled something. Elvis hoped that Geller’s prediction that the “Can’t Help Falling in Love” singer’s fans would love him even more proved correct.
