Check out the fascinating trailer above for the upcoming Aretha Franklin documentary, Amazing Grace.
This documentary follows the story leading up to a never before seen 1972 concert at the New Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles with Aretha Franklin. The Queen of Soul, who was 29 at the time, took the stage and brought church to the concert.
“She can sing anything, anything! My sister, Aretha Franklin,” the presenter says as Franklin walks out onto the carpet wearing a glistening white full beaded gown and a tightly coiffed afro.
Franklin’s performance of the popular hymnal was part of a series of recordings on the same day, including “Mary, Don’t You Weep” and “Climbing Higher Mountains.” The songs from the two-night show were compiled into an album and remains the best-selling live gospel album of all time, according to Esquire.
After almost 50 years the footage will finally be released.
The movie hits select theaters on April 5, 2019.
