Recorded live in 1972 at Rev. James Cleveland’s church in Watts, California in front of a lively audience/congregation, Aretha Franklin’s album Amazing Grace would become the highest selling album of her career and the most popular Gospel album of all time.
Forty-seven years later, the documentary of this recording is finally being released. The film is a testimony to the greatness of Aretha Franklin and a time- machine window into a moment in American musical and social history.
