From the film The Commitments (1991). Bible verse-spouting trumpet player played by Johnny Murphy. According to him, he's had a long career as a sideman, playing with most of the great soul players, The Beatles, and even the King himself (Elvis).

At the movie's end, he's back in the States, playing with Joe Tex. Who's been dead since 1982. So no telling what the real story is.
