Youthful Ugandan gospel singer Mark Elvis Mutalya a.k.a. Mac Elvis is dead.
He is said to have drowned in a swimming pool this morning in Tanzania where he and a number of other Ugandan artists were involved in school and church tours. Elvis was aged 26.
A Watoto Child Care beneficiary, Elvis was taken in after losing his parents at the age of 6. He managed to complete his high school exams after which he embarked on pursuing his music career. Elvis attributed the messages in his songs to the hope that he found in God and His people despite personal suffering.
Elvis was a born again Christian who put in his bid for royalty as an urban gospel prince with his 2011 release, “Church Boy”, an album full of mid-tempo jams and occasional club rockers
