Amazing Grace Documentary Trailer

Aretha Franklin Takes Us to Church in the Trailer For the Amazing Grace Documentary

The official trailer for Aretha Franklin's upcoming documentary, Amazing Grace, is here, and you might want to have a box of tissues nearby for this one. The film centers around Franklin's unforgettable 1972 performance of "Amazing Grace" at the New Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles. The trailer features Franklin standing behind the pulpit as she begins to sing with remarkable authority and stage presence. Although Franklin was just 29 years old at the time, she was able to stir everyone in the congregation with her stunning vocals. The clips were shot by Sydney Pollack and compiled by Alan Elliott.

That same day at the church, the late and great Franklin also belted other songs, including "Mary, Don't You Weep" and "Climbing Higher Mountains." The show was then turned into the 1972 soundtrack Amazing Grace, which is still the best-selling live gospel album of all time. And up until recently, the footage of that performance was unreleased.
