In 1972 Aretha Franklin performed a live concert in a Los Angeles Baptist church, and director Sydney Pollack (Out of Africa) filmed the entire glorious performance. The resulting gospel album became a legend but the film’s release was stalled by decades of technical and financial issues. Finally, audiences can witness the Queen of Soul at the height of her powers as she brings down the house with rousing renditions of How I Got Over, Marvin Gaye’s Wholy Holy, the miraculous title song, and more.
