Summary
Why is "Amazing Grace" the most-performed hymn in the English language? In this film, Bill Moyers seeks to understand the enduring power that has carried this song across continents and through time-and the compelling story of the slaver-turned-preacher who wrote it. This disc includes the full-length program Amazing Grace as well as a special video introduction by Mr. Moyers and a menu of chapters, ten segments derived from the program that spotlight the history of the hymn and some of its notable singers as they reflect on what "Amazing Grace" means to them. Country singer Johnny Cash, opera singer Jessye Norman, folksingers Judy Collins and Jean Ritchie, gospel singer Marion Williams, shape-note singers from Georgia and Alabama, and the Boys Choir of Harlem are featured
