Amazing Grace
The never-before-seen movie featuring Aretha Franklin recording the most successful gospel album of all time, Amazing Grace, in cinemas from Friday 10th May 2019

10/05/2019 6PM | FILM | Press


‘Amazing Grace’ is crafted from never-before-seen footage originally captured in 1972.


Recorded live at Rev James Cleveland’s church in Watts, California in front of a lively audience/congregation, Amazing Grace would become the highest selling album of Franklin’s career and the most popular Gospel album of all time. However, the film was never released publicly. Forty-seven years later, and after using new digital technology, this film is a testimony to the greatness of Aretha Franklin and a time-machine window into a moment in American musical and social history.


One of the best-selling musical artists of all time, with more than 75 million records sold worldwide, Aretha Franklin, the undisputed “Queen of Soul” created an amazing legacy of more than six decades. She sung before heads of state and foreign royals and gained admiration from fans, colleagues, and fellow artists across all genres.


‘Amazing Grace’ is in cinemas from Friday 10th May 2019
