"Amazing Grace, featuring Aretha Franklin at the height of her powers, is one of the greatest concert documentaries ever made. It reaches so far into transcendence that watching it becomes an almost ecstatic experience." — Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor

"A triumph of timeless artistry over transitory obstacles; its very existence is a secular miracle." — Richard Brody, New Yorker
