About Amazing Grace

"Amazing Grace" (2018) is a mesmerizing concert documentary that captures Aretha Franklin's powerful and soulful performance at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles in 1972.

Directed by Sydney Pollack and later realized by Alan Elliott, the film provides an intimate look at Franklin's profound musical talent and deep spiritual connection. 

The documentary showcases her singing gospel classics, including the titular "Amazing Grace," backed by the Southern California Community Choir and Reverend James Cleveland. The raw, unembellished footage, paired with the electrifying atmosphere of the church, transports viewers into the heart of this historic event.

Franklin's extraordinary vocal prowess and emotional intensity are on full display, offering an unforgettable experience that highlights the transcendent power of gospel music. "Amazing Grace" is not only a tribute to Franklin's legacy but also a testament to the enduring impact of her artistry and the timeless appeal of her music.
