NEON has released the trailer and poster for Amazing Grace, which is scheduled to open in Los Angeles and New York theaters on April 5th.
The documentary presents the live recording of Aretha Franklin’s album Amazing Grace at The New Bethel Baptist Church in Watts, Los Angeles in January 1972. The film is crafted from never-before-seen footage originally captured in 1972.
The film was produced and realized by Alan Elliott.
Amazing Grace was the fourth live album by Aretha Franklin. Released on June 1, 1972 by Atlantic Records, it sold over two million copies in the United States alone, earning a double platinum certification. The album was remastered and re-released in 1999 as a two-CD set with many unreleased takes.
