Summary
"One of the most acclaimed music documentaries of all time, Say Amen, Somebody is George Nierenberg's masterpiece -- a joyous, funny, deeply emotional celebration of African American culture, featuring the father of Gospel, Thomas A. Dorsey ("Precious Lord, Take My Hand"); its matron, Mother Willie Mae Ford Smith; and earth-shaking performances by the Barrett Sisters and the O'Neal Twins."--Container
