Plot summary

What is Amazing Grace movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Amazing Grace" movie plot summary.

American singer Aretha Franklin records her gospel album Amazing Grace live at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles in 1972. She is accompanied by the Southern California Community Choir (Alexander Hamilton), directed by Alexander Hamilton, positioned behind her as Franklin sings from the church's lectern or from the piano to a mostly African-American audience. James Cleveland appears as master of ceremonies, featured singer and piano accompanist. Franklin is also accompanied by Kenny Luper on organ, Cornell Dupree on guitar, Bernard Purdie on drums, Chuck Rainey on bass guitar and Poncho Moralaes on percussion. On the second night Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts appear in the audience, in Los Angeles at the time to finish the Rolling Stones' album Exile on Main St. Critic Jordan Hoffman believes the gospel inflections of songs such as "Shine a Light" and "Let It Loose" were inspired by this visit.
