"Amazing Grace" (2018 release; 87 min.) is a documentary about the making of Aretha Franklin's gospel album "Amazing Grace". As the movie opens, we are reminded it is "January, 1972", and that we are at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles. Rev. James Cleveland, the MC for these proceedings, introduces the Southern California Community Choir, and then Aretha Franklin herself. Aretha was on the cusp of turning 30, and at the peak of her creative powers. She opens at the piano, with "Mary Don't You Weep", keeping her eyes closed during much of the song. You listen and watch in wonder and amazement. - Paul Allaer
