TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - The 20th annual Elvis Festival came to an end with its Gospel Sunday. 

People filled the BancorpSouth Conference Center to hear musical performances by the vocal trio, Landmark, as well as a group of Elvis tribute artists to celebrate the gospel side of Elvis' career. 

"It's just powerful. It's just so powerful what is going on," said concert attendee Lonnie Dufrene. He visited Tupelo from Lockport, Louisiana. "This is the biggest event from what I've seen."

The event also featured a "love offering," allowing spectators to pray and donate money to the St. Jude Children's Hospital.
