This documentary shows never-before-seen footage of the Aretha Franklin concert in the New Bethel Baptist Church in Los Angeles in January 1972. At the time, at the start of the 1970s, Franklin had become a true star, thanks to songs like 'I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You)' and 'Chain of Fools', and she decided to record an album inspired by her roots in gospel music. Instead of recording the album in a studio, she recorded it in a church with a choir and a live audience. Although Warner Bros commissioned the two nights of the concert to be recorded, the film was never released. Now, after Franklin's death, Alan Elliot brings the project (which was started by Sydney Pollack) to the big screen.
