Amazing Grace

Documentary 1h 28m 2018

A documentary presenting Aretha Franklin with choir at the New Bethel Baptist Church in Watts, Los Angeles in January 1972.

Captures Queen of Soul ARETHA FRANKLIN as she records the most successful gospel album of all time, AMAZING GRACE, with James Cleveland and the Southern California Community Choir. Crafted from never-before-seen footage that captures an elegiac moment in American musical history whilst saluting the get-up-on-your-feet gospel heritage that transformed American music in the 1960s.

“A movie worth seeing and re-seeing and re-seeing again, a testament to the Queen of Soul at the height of her powers, live, in full color, in rich sound, resplendent.” ~ Dan Callahan, TheWrap.
