Who is the original singer of amazing grace
"Amazing Grace" is a well-known Christian hymn. The words were written late in 1772 by Englishman John Newton. They first appeared in print in Newton's Olney Hymns (1779), which he worked on with William Cowper.
Then between 1970 and 1972, a version by Judy Collins spent 67 weeks in the UK Singles Chart, a record for a female artist, and peaked at number five.
