The Aretha Franklin Gospel Documentary “Amazing Grace” is finally being released!
The documentary features footage from the making of Aretha’s best-selling gospel album “Amazing Grace.”
In early 1972, Franklin arrived at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in L.A. for a pair of performances with the backing of the Rev. James Cleveland and the Southern California Community Choir. Recorded by Atlantic Records engineers and documented on film by Sydney Pollack, the music was released less than six months later as the double album “Amazing Grace.”
The “Amazing Grace” documentary will make its premiere on Nov. 12th at DOC NYC, a New York-based film festival centered on documentaries.
