Aretha Franklin, at the height of her powers, returns to the music which nurtured her prodigious talent.
Director: Alan Elliott
Sydney Pollack’s concert film of Aretha Franklin’s two-night recording session at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in 1972 didn’t see the light of day due to numerous issues including synching sound and image… until now. Watch Aretha with wonder as a singer at the height of her powers returns to the music which nurtured her prodigious talent, and in the process produces the best-selling gospel album of all time. Her rendition of ‘Amazing Grace’ is one of the most sensational concert film performances ever captured.
