The world is finally getting a glimpse of Jennifer Hudson’s big transformation into Aretha Franklin for the upcoming biopic, Respect. A trailer for the flick dropped and as expected it’s amazing.
The upcoming biopic of Franklin whom we lost over a year ago follows the rise of Aretha Franklin’s career from a child singing in her father’s church’s choir to her international superstardom.
Hudson has been shooting the film for months in Detroit and NYC and revealed to HipHollywood exclusively what the process has been like.
In case you forgot, Jennifer Hudson was the actress that Aretha Franklin personally tapped to portray her. But before she hits the screen playing Aretha, Hudson is taking on another iconic role playing Grizabella in the film adaption of Cats.
