"Amazing Grace is the heart and soul of Aretha Franklin. This film is authentic and is my aunt to her core. Our family couldn't be more excited for audiences to experience the genius of her work and spirit through this film."
- Sabrina Owens, Franklin's niece and personal representative of the Aretha Franklin Estate

"One of the greatest concerts ever put to film. It's a spiritual, religious experience." - Spike Lee, Deadline

"Two days of Baptist Church condensed to 90 minutes and injected directly into your soul. This film is a powerful love letter."

OFFICIAL SELECTION: Doc NYC; True/False Film Festival

Amazing Grace, directed by Alan Elliott and using footage shot by the late Sydney Pollack, tracks Aretha Franklin's return to gospel music in 1972 with the choir at the New Bethel Baptist Church in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Watts, when the legendary Queen of Soul was 29 years old and at the peak of her vocal powers. The album of the same name became the biggest-selling ever in gospel, but the film was mired in technicalities for decades before being approved by the Aretha Franklin Estate.
