 Watch The Trailer For Amazing Grace, Aretha Franklin Queen Of Soul

Her music needs no introduction, she was the Queen Of Soul, Aretha Franklin. Finally Studiocanal release the Official Trailer for Amazing Grace, the never-before-seen footage taken during the intimate recording of her iconic album.

No one who loves music will want to miss this thrilling film, which is both a revealing look at a key moment in American musical and social history, and an invaluable record of one of America’s greatest artists doing what she did best.

Aretha Franklin‘s voice so distinctive and easily recognisable world wide. Hypnotic persona, a true inspiration in not just music, but as a wonderful role model for young women too. With so many films based on certain eras of musicians and bands, nice to go back and see a documentary. Watch a true legend at work at the pinnacle of her career.

In 1971, Aretha Franklin, the undisputed Queen of Soul, brought producer Jerry Wexler, her backup singers, and the legendary Atlantic Records rhythm section to The New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Watts to record an album of gospel music before an enthusiastic live audience. The result, “Amazing Grace”, went on to become the top-selling gospel record of all time, the biggest album of Aretha Franklin’s career, and one of her most beloved works.

But even as the album gained fans around the world, few realized that those inspirational sessions had not only been recorded, they had been filmed by a camera crew led by Oscar winning filmmaker Sydney Pollack.

Pollack and his team spent two nights capturing Franklin at the height of her powers, as she thrilled a shouting and dancing audience that included Franklin’s father, Reverend C.L. Franklin, gospel legends Clara Ward and Mother Ward of the Ward Family Singers, Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts, and the members of The New Temple Missionary Baptist Church. But due to technical problems, and conflicts over rights, their film has never been seen. Until now.

Amazing Grace will relight your soul when it  gets its UK and Irish cinematic release on 10th May 2019.
