Amazing Grace
The Queen of Soul recorded her famous album entitled 'Amazing Grace' in 1972, in a church of Los Angeles. It has become the most successful gospel music album ever: Aretha Franklin is accompanied by her musicians and a renowned gospel choir.
Warner Studios asked director Sydney Pollack to transform the concert into an exciting documentary. Pollack recorded an almost 20 hours long material in two days shooting. Unfortunately technical problems occurred and the work had to be postponed. Finally in the 2000s the movie has been made, but it couldn't be released in cinemas until Aretha Franklin's death. 'Amazing Grace' is a real gap-filling documentary which shows us the background of the concert: the reaction of the public (Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts was there too), the joy, the sorrow, everything that contributed to the success of the event.
