Amazing Grace

A captivating musical documentary presenting the live recording of Aretha Franklin's album Amazing Grace at The New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Watts, Los Angeles in January 1972.

About Amazing Grace—The Album
By 1971, Aretha Franklin was known as the Queen of Soul. In the culmination of five years of charttopping hits, she and her producer, Jerry Wexler of Atlantic Records, decided her next recording would take her back to the music of her youth, to the world of American Gospel music. Amazing Grace was not intended as a swan song, but it would turn out to be an elegiac moment in American musical history as well as as a salute to the gospel heritage that had transformed American music in the 1960s.
