Aretha Franklin: Remembering the Queen of Soul

Everyone deserves to have Aretha Franklin take them to the moon!


Worldwide – Aretha Franklin’s long-awaited concert documentary “Amazing Grace” will be released internationally in April 2019!

Originally shot in 1972, Amazing Grace documents the production of Franklin’s critically-acclaimed gospel album of the same name, which she recorded live at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles.

Amazing Grace was the fourth live album by the American singer. Released on June 1, 1972, by Atlantic Records, it ultimately sold over two million copies in the United States alone, earning a double platinum certification. As of 2017, it stands as the biggest selling disc of Franklin’s entire fifty-plus year recording career as well as the highest selling live gospel music album of all time. It won Franklin the 1973 Grammy Award for Best Soul Gospel Performance.

The film is set to be shown in select theatres in New York and Los Angeles on April 5 before it expands nationwide.
