"Amazing Grace With Bill Moyers" is an entertaining look at a song that's been recorded by more popular artists than any other hymn. From pop singer Judy Collins and opera star Jessye Norman in New York, to Philadelphia gospel singer Marion Williams and Kentucky folk singer Jean Ritchie, these stirring, very diverse performances were recorded in stereo on locations all across America. Along with the music, the artists reveal the power that "Amazing Grace" has had in their personal lives, which makes the film a touching emotional experience.
