Madilyn Paige tells about her surprising start on 'The Voice' and her recently released album, none of which would have been possible without her faith and reliance on her Heavenly Father.

In fact, prior to the show, Paige suffered from intense stage fright. While most singers dream about the opportunity to perform on TV in front of millions around the world, that possibility sounded more like a nightmare to Paige.
“While I was on The Voice, I especially had to rely on Heavenly Father, because I was completely out of my comfort zone. . . . I had no idea how I was going to make it through the experience and to this day I don’t know how I would have had I not had the Lord on my side helping me through it,” says Paige.

Did you know Elvis received two copies of the Book of Mormon and even visited an early morning seminary class?
Elvis didn't relish his title of King. As he said, “there is only one King,” and that was Jesus Christ (Brother Paul’s Mormon Bathroom Reader, Paul B. Skousen, 2005).
Deeply religious and a heavy reader of spiritual topics, Elvis showed considerable interest in the LDS Church and maintained many close connections with Mormons. In fact, after his death, a copy of the Book of Mormon was found in his room with the message, “Priscilla needs to read this” written within the well-worn cover (Brother Paul’s Mormon Bathroom Reader, Paul B. Skousen, 2005).
Elvis received his first Book of Mormon through the gates of Graceland, his home in Memphis. A young LDS woman and ardent Elvis fan, Cricket Butler, often sat vigilantly outside his home or hotel—coming early in the morning and staying late in the night—waiting for a chance to speak with her idol. Butler’s persistence finally paid off when late one evening Elvis walked out to his gates to visit with Butler. During their conversation on life and its purpose, Butler handed him a copy of the Book of Mormon.
Found in his room after his death, this ordinary 1976 version of the Book of Mormon took quite the journey, passing from the hands of Cricket Butler to Alan Osmond before finally ending up at Church headquarters (“Elvis Almost LDS?” Lynn Arave).
MR says: We can tell these missionaries sure are happy about sharing the Plan of Salvation!
