Movie Trailer: Aretha Franklin’s Stunning ‘Amazing Grace’ Documentary

Published: Friday 8th Mar 2019 by Rashad

The once shelved Aretha Franklin documentary, ‘Amazing Grace,’ has scored a nationwide release date.

Showcasing the stunning vocal prowess of the then-29-year-old songstress recording her legendary ‘Amazing Grace’ gospel album, the original footage was helmed by director Sydney Pollack at the New Bethel Baptist Church in Watts, Calif., in 1972.

Now, after over three decades of “technicalities” stalling its release, the documentary is ready for unveiling as its new, “must see” trailer illustrates.  Look below to see the magic ahead of the film’s premiere in theaters on April 5:


The film’s nationwide debut will come nearly a month after CBS airs its star-studded Aretha! A Grammy Celebration for the Queen of Soul,’ airing Sunday (March 10).
