Aretha Franklin's "Amazing Grace"
April 22, 2012 10:00 PM Subscribe
On January 13 and 14, 1972, Aretha Franklin sang
during services at the Reverend James Cleveland's New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in the Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles. The audio recordings released as Amazing Grace
remain the largest-selling gospel album in history. However, of the 20 hours of 16mm film footage by Sydney Pollack - intended as a concert movie for tandem release - only a few snippets
have ever been seen. (previously: 1, 2)
