EDITORS’ NOTES

If you’re only planning on listening to one gospel record, make it this. Released after almost two decades of performance, Amazing Grace revisits Tennessee native Aretha Franklin’s musical roots in full, empowering splendor. And this opus isn't just a celebration; it's a revelation. Here Franklin liberates her vocals—tricking out traditional gospel standards with secular grooves and bluesy rock flourishes, as on the uptempo “How I Got Over”—and leads a swelling choir on “What a Friend We Have in Jesus.”
