Gaither Vocal Band Sings “Can't Help Falling in Love”

Updated Apr 12, 2024

Enjoy this lovely performance by the Gaither Vocal Band as they sing “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”

What a beautiful song it is—recorded originally by Elvis Presley in March 1961 and released in November of that same year. Here, the gentlemen of the Gaither Vocal Band sing the song for their lady loves and for the rest of us as well.

Todd Suttles opens the song. He looks to his wife, Michelle, as he sings. When he expresses the word “but” at 21 seconds, it’s easy to imagine his wife falling in love with that rich baritone voice! 

By the fourth line, the other members add background vocals. They are, from right to left, Reggie Smith, Adam Crabb, Bill Gaither, and Wes Hampton. Across from the talented crooners sit their gorgeous wives, including Gloria Gaither and Ladye Love Smith

You might enjoy playing a match game with the group. But, just a hint, they are not all directly across from their spouses. If you find yourself stumped, go back and watch the first few seconds again as the camera pans in from a view of the pretty and inviting room where they gather. 

I love the smiles that the gentlemen and ladies wear! This is a group who have committed their whole lives to praising and glorifying God! The two newest members of the group, Adam and Todd, joined the GVB in 2014; Reggie and Wes have been singing with the Gaither Vocal Band or other Gaither groups and ministries for much longer. 

At 55 seconds, the men sing in unison, each adding their unique musical gifts to the song. Though it’s not a song about God, we certainly know that God is in favor of Godly marriage, Holy matrimony, and committed love. We’re betting that these couples are, too!

A perennial favorite at wedding receptions, here are four lines from the classic love song:

Like a river flows
 Surely to the sea
 Darling, so it goes
 Some things are meant to be

You might get goosebumps as Todd stands and sings directly to Michelle, asking in song for her to take his “hand” and his “whole life, too.” That’s what true love is all about. Taking another person’s hand and giving the best, you have to give through the good and bad. But there’s more! Do not exit early; the sweetest moment is yet to come!

Whether a courtship takes days or decades, is rushed or ruminated on, when God is in the relationship and the romance—well, that’s not foolish at all! Thank you, Gaither Vocal Band, for giving us such a sweet reminder of how awesome Christian love is!

“For the believing wife brings holiness to her marriage, and the believing husband brings holiness to his marriage. Otherwise, your children would not be holy, but now they are holy.” 1 Corinthians 7:14
