Aretha Franklin’s musical training ground was the church, so she returned to the church to produce a live gospel album, the Grammy-winning Amazing Grace, her biggest hit record. Shot in 1972 and edited in 2018, this footage fully captures Franklin’s presence and the celestial power of her voice, which is nothing short of mesmerising.
