Two days of Baptist church condensed to 90 minutes and injected directly into your soul. Shot in 1972 over a 48-hour period in Watts’ New Temple Missionary Baptist Church, this stirring documentary captures the live recording of the most successful gospel album in history: Aretha Franklin’s Amazing Grace.

“It will make you feel as if you’ve seen the face of God”

Rolling Stone

At the height of her powers, with eleven number one singles and five Grammys to her credit, she returned to the environment and the music that honed her voice and nurtured her soul. The result became her biggest seller, earning a Grammy and quite possibly more than a few conversions.

This is part of our music day on Tuesday 24th September. We are also showing Miles Ahead, Wild Rose and Mozart in Turkey.
