AMAZING GRACE has been nominated for Best Reissue at the NME Awards 2020! Winners will be announced on February 12 at the O2 Academy Brixton.
Aretha Franklin’s AMAZING GRACE was among President Barack Obama’s favorite movies for 2019. See repost from @barackobama IG: Next up are my favorite movies and TV shows of 2019. This year’s list includes everything from explorations of class dynamics and relationships, to an inspired reboot of a classic graphic novel, to a portal back to one of the most special places in history — an Aretha Franklin concert. Of course, there’s also American Factory, a film from our own production company, Higher Ground, that was recently shortlisted for an Oscar. It’s our first offering in partnership with Netflix, and I’m excited about the other projects we’ve got in the works.
