In the lead up to the new Aretha Franklin biopic, RESPECT, TPH are putting on an encore screening of the filming of the most successful gospel album of all time, AMAZING GRACE with James Cleveland and the Southern California Community Choir.
Recorded at The New Bethel Baptist Church in Watts, Los Angeles in January 1972. This is one of our absolute top picks from this year’s South by Southwest Festival! We’re so excited to finally getting a chance to share it with you!

Synopsis: AMAZING GRACE is crafted from never-before-seen footage that captures an elegiac moment in American musical history whilst saluting the get-up-on-your-feet gospel heritage that transformed American music in the 1960s.
