If you haven’t already, you’ve got to start putting some R-E-S-P-E-C-T on Jennifer Hudson’s name, because she will be playing Aretha Franklin in her new biopic. 

We all know Franklin as a legendary singer whose music is played at protests, family parties and of course your house when you’re cleaning on Sunday mornings. Along with her singing, she is known for her aunty-like personality. The film highlights her journey in the music business, obstacles, popular performances and her love life, which includes some handsome fellas you may recognize.

But, It gets even better because your favorite celebrities like Mary J. Blige, Forest Whitaker, Marlon Wayans, Hailey Kilgore, Titus Burgess and many more are all in the biopic! Make sure to mark your calendars for December 25, 2021 to catch the biopic in a theatre near you. Even though it’s a while away, this gives you plenty of time to learn more Aretha songs!
