Jennifer Hudson: Aretha Franklin, Faith, and Her Voice

She was handpicked by Aretha Franklin to star in the biopic of The Queen of Soul. Oscar Winner Jennifer Hudson reflects on her decade-long relationship with the iconic singer and the parallels they share. From growing up singing in her daddy’s church to recording her Gospel album, the rocky relationships, family dynamics and her incredible voice, we cover a lot of ground as RESPECT is set to hit theatres Friday.
