The queen of soul Aretha Franklin may be gone, but her legacy lives on. The trailer for her highly anticipated Amazing Grace documentary has been released and just the snippet of her effortlessly performing the song will most definitely give you chills as well as make you impatiently wait for the premier.

The video of her recording the Amazing Grace live album, which has never been released, was shot over two nights in 1972 at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles. Aretha, who was then 29, got the entire congregation moved by her powerful voice and riveting performance.

Directed by Sydney Pollack, the video was unreleased for decades because of technical and legal issues, according to Rolling Stone.

The documentary will be released on May 10.
