Originally released in 1972, Amazing Grace was recorded in a large Baptist church with an ultra-enthusiastic, loving audience in the pews and a full, funky, band as well as the Southern California Community Choir under the direction of her mentor Rev. James Cleveland. Amazing Grace ultimately sold over two million copies in the United States alone, earning a Double Platinum certification. As of 2013, it stood as the biggest selling disc of Aretha's entire fifty-plus year recording career, and is the biggest selling live gospel album of all time.
