Nearly a year removed from her passing, Aretha Franklin’s impact can be still felt and seen. The first trailer for the documentary Amazing Grace‘s theatrical release was released this week and will send chills down your spine.
In the trailer, the Queen of Soul is depicting singing “Amazing Grace” before enthusiastic church goers. The highly anticipated documentary premiered last fall in New York to critical acclaim.
Directed by Sydney Pollack, the documentary was originally filmed in 1972 but has been shelved for decades until now due numerous technical and legal issues. The documentary centers around Franklin’s performances at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles.
