A documentary from Sydney Pollack presenting the live recording, with choir, of Aretha Franklin’s album Amazing Grace at The New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Watts, Los Angeles in January 1972 and only released now after nearly 50 years!
It’s a wonderful time capsule that has been unearthed for us to appreciate.
Aretha sings from another plane and she sits naturally in this church/recording session in front of an audience of church goers and stars alike.
We strongly recommend that you buy your tickets in advance here.
