Amazing Grace Cast Recording Set For 2016 Release

Last Sunday, the Nederlander Theatre said goodbye to the heartfelt production, Amazing Grace. The show, which opened July 16 and played 24 previews and 114 regular performances, will record an Amazing Grace cast recording by DMI Soundtracks for a January 2016 release.

The new musical arrived on Broadway after a run in Chicago last fall. Troika Entertainment is planning to launch a national tour of the production, although no other details have yet been released. The cast will reunite Nov. 2 to record the 22-track recording. Six-time Grammy winner Frank Filipetti is set to produce and engineer.

The track-listing:

“Truly Alive”
“Someone Who Hears”
“Yema’s Song”
“Voices Of The Angels”
“We Are Determined”
“Shadows of Innocence”
“The Battle/The Drowning”
“African Welcome Song”
“Sing on High”
“Tell Me Why”
“A Chance for Me”
“Nowhere Left to Run”
“I Still Believe”
“I Will Remember”
“Nothing There To Love”
“Amazing Grace”

Amazing Grace is described as a “new original musical based on the awe-inspiring true story behind the world’s most beloved song. A captivating tale of romance, rebellion and redemption, this radiant production follows one man whose incredible journey ignited a historic wave of change.

John Newton (played by Tony Award nominee Josh Young), a willful and musically talented young Englishman, faces a future as uncertain as the turning tide. Coming of age as Britain sits atop an international empire of slavery, he finds himself torn between following in the footsteps of his father – a slave trader – or embracing the more compassionate views of his childhood sweetheart (Erin Mackey). Accompanied by his slave, Thomas (Tony Award-winner Chuck Cooper), John embarks on a perilous voyage on the high seas. When that journey finds John in his darkest hour, a transformative moment of self-reckoning inspires a blazing anthem of hope that will finally guide him home.

The musical also starred Tom Hewitt, Chris Hoch, Stanley Bahorek, Harriett D. Foy, Laiona Michelle, Rachael Ferrera and Elizabeth Ward Land.

We had such a wonderful night at Amazing Grace on Broadway and will miss it dearly, but are delighted to know those sweet sounds will be available early next year.
