Aretha Franklin documentary “Amazing Grace” will be going out on tour this fall and winter.
The film will be part of a 22-state road show that will offer free screenings of the documentary as a centerpiece of multi-day voter registration events being sponsored by the Poor People’s Campaign, a historic civil rights organization that Franklin supported since it was founded by Martin Luther King, Jr. in the 1960s.
The tour was announced on Monday at a press conference prior to a screening of “Amazing Grace” at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.
In a separate development, “Grace” producer Alan Elliott tells Variety that an expanded version of “Amazing Grace” is being prepared for release in theaters next spring to coincide with Franklin’s birthday in March.
Watch “Amazing Grace” on Amazon Prime Video.
