The never-before-seen music documentary captures Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin as she records the most successful gospel album of all time, 'Amazing Grace' with James Cleveland and the Southern California Community Choir.

Recorded at The New Bethel Baptist Church in Watts, Los Angeles in January 1972, 'Amazing Grace' is crafted from never-before-seen footage that captures an elegiac moment in American musical history whilst saluting the get-up-on-your-feet gospel heritage that transformed American music in the 1960s.
