Event Details

A 1972 concert at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Watts, where Aretha Franklin recorded what many consider the best album of her career. Featuring Franklin at her mightiest and backed by an inspired and inspiring choir, Amazing Grace is her best-selling album and the best-selling live Gospel album of all time. Reviewing the record, Rolling Stone said, “The liberation and abandon she has always implied in her greatest moments are now fully and consistently achieved." The film is as astounding as the music.
