Sunday Sounds – Amazing Grace

Aretha Franklin


Sydney Pollack‘s 1972 film of Aretha Franklin recording her hit gospel LP, Amazing Grace, may finally see the light of day.

After 38 years stuck in the Warner Bros vault, producer Alan Elliott has reassembled the footage and intends on releasing the film later this year, reports Variety. Pollack died in 2008 at the age of 73.

Amazing Grace was recorded live in Los Angeles in January 1972. The resulting recording became the best-selling album of Franklin’s career.

Check out the trailer for Pollack’s film below!
