Recorded over two nights at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles in January 1972, Amazing Grace went on to become Aretha's biggest-selling album and the best-selling live gospel album of all time.
Amazing Grace originally included 13 songs, plus remarks by Reverend C.L. Franklin. In 1999, the album was remastered and expanded to include all the recordings from both nights.
A documentary was planned to accompany the Amazing Grace album, but technical issues kept the film from being released for nearly 50 years. That changed last November when Amazing Grace, at long last, premiered at the 2018 DOC NYC, America's largest documentary film festival.
